Attack against TLS-protected communications
UPDATE 10.18.11:
Today, Oracle is releasing a patch update to Java SE to address this vulnerability. We recommend that users update their Java plugin to ensure that they have the latest and most secure fixes.

Windows users on auto update should start seeing the updates as early as this week. Users can also manually download the update here: http://java.com.

Apple distributes Java updates directly for OS X.

We will not be blocking vulnerable versions of Java at this time, though we will continue to monitor for incidents of this vulnerability being exploited in the wild.
