I have a question about Java vulnerabilities. Once I upgrade Java, and rerun Secunia the older Java vulnerabilities still show up.

It appears that upgrading Java leaves the older version installed, or at least listed on the system. Are these older Java vulnerabilities still active, or can they be accepted being that I'm not running that version of Java anymore?

Thx,
Jeff

Hi Jeff ,

Old versions of Java are potentially dangerous . The current installers should remove the previous version for you ; older versions you go for manually . Depending on your OS go to Control Panel -> Add/remove (or the equivalent) and get rid of anything Java that is not Java (TM) 6 Update 24 or 25 . Anything else JRE , JDK or similar can go .

Then run a full scan ; if it is not 100% where is the PSI displaying Java ?? click the [+]on the lhs of the programme entry and tell us the detected instance installation pathway .

Anthony
