Today’s news says that there's supposed to be a Java update available, so presumably that would be Update 17. But if there's an Update 17 for Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.6, Software Update.app doesn't know about it yet. I just ran Software Update and it reported that all my apps are up to date. Likewise, there’s no Update 17 available (yet) on Apple’s website as of the time of this posting. Running the Java Preferences utilily shows that the most recent version of Java installed on my Mac Pro in Snow Leopard (10.6.8) is Java SE6 v1.6.0_51-b11-456 (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available), which was installed with Update 16. So it appears that either the recent update doesn't affect Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.6, or Apple hasn't yet released the update.

Actually Update 14 for 10.6.8 updates Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_43 and not 1.6.0_41 (this detail should be corrected also for the update for 10.7 and 10.8).

Remember to "Repair Disk Permissions" and check the "Off/On" status in Java Preferences after installing this update. A word to the wise?

The most important issue that users of Snow Leopard need to be aware of is the fact that Java 6 is almost End Of Life (EOL). That means that there will be no more updates after this month, so any future security vulnerabilities will go unpatched: http://oracle.com/technetwork/java/eol-135779.html I repeat, Java 6 is almost officially dead, and you need a plan to stop using it very soon. What that means is that 10.6 users need to figure out a way to make the leap to Java 7, even though the official installer from Oracle only works with 10.7 and above. Here are some suggestions: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13536667/how-to-install-java-jdk-7-on-snow-leopard

Since the Dept. of Homeland Security has issued such a strong warning against Java, can anybody tell me why exactly I need Java at all? (I"d like to do my own risk/benefit assessment).

The update is available. For some wacky reason Apple's links go to the incorrect place unless you come from different links at Apple's own website. Try this page and choose download from here: http://support.apple.com/downloads/

Anyone tried this one? If I understand well, it forces all browsers to disable java applets, but what if I've already disabled java in all my browsers? (a long time ago, indeed... ;-) Is there any other benefit of installing this? Frankly, I'm more and more doubtful about those and other security updates... (once upon a time, it was only a Microsoft disease! ;-D)

If you had your Java Preferences unchecked (set to off in Utilities/Java Preferences) applying this update will turn them back ON. A word to the wise.

Will this hinder running Java apps that don't run within web browsers in any way? For example, the Android SDK relies on Java to run.

I'm surprised "Apple Java for Mac OS X 10.6" doesn't list OS X 10.7.4 as minimum system requirements.

According to PCMag, this latest update will: "Apple's update will also disable the Java plugin on all Web browsers (not just Safari) and turn off applet execution by default. Even if the user manually enables automatic execution of applets via the Java Preferences application, it will automatically be disabled if applets haven't been run within 35 days, according to Apple." http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/33087/apple-java-for-mac-os-x-10.6 Not sure I want such a pushy update.

The link on MacUpdate downloads the previous version of the Java update. Even Apple's web site has some old links. And the pages for the Java updates are still labeled with the old versions. However, the download links on the specific pages download the right versions, though the links on the main download page do not - I downloaded numerous times to figure this out. The right link for Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 8 is http://support.apple.com/downloads/DL1516/en_US/JavaForMacOSX10.6.dmg.
