New Java VM from Microsoft
Microsoft released a new version of its Java Virtual Machine for download yesterday. This is now build 3805, which replaces the previous build 3802. Among other things, the new version closes a security gap.
This affects users of Internet Explorer (IE) who access the Internet via a proxy server. Attackers were able to redirect the data traffic via the gap and thus obtain personal data. Microsoft has classified the vulnerability as critical and recommends that all users install the new build. The download is possible from Microsoft .
