Oracle website lists update 7.7 available for download. Does the update fix the reported vulnerability?

Shouldn't this be updated? Java 7 version 7 is STILL not secure!

Yes, it is true that Java 7 update 7 has already been found to be insecure:

However, it's the latest version currently available, and as such, is presumably better to have than earlier versions --- provided you have an actual need for Java.

Many people are finally realizing that Java is less common online than they had been led to believe. I went Java-free about two years ago, and have not regretted that decision.

but the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) does not (it uses Flash instead).

Actually the PSI works fine without Adobe Flash Player. For the exact system requirements please see this page:
