Oracle isn’t done releasing patches for Java SE this month, as another batch will arrive February 19, according to a company blog post.
On February 1, Oracle pulled the trigger early on the February release, which had originally been scheduled for February 19, due to a serious vulnerability that affected Java at the browser level.
As a result of the hastened release, Oracle didn’t manage to include a “small number” of fixes that had been planned for inclusion, according to the blog.
Critical patch releases for Java SE are cumulative in nature, meaning that any user who didn’t apply the group released on February 1 will get everything at once in the February 19 batch, according to the post.
The patch set released February 1 contained 50 fixes, including 44 for vulnerabilities at the browser level. It wasn’t clear Friday how many more will be added to the set later this month.
