Submission + - Apple Blocks Java on Macs Completely (

hypnosec writes: Apple has blocked Java from Mac systems and this is the second time in a month as it believes that its users are still at risk from the vulnerabilities. The iPad maker has blocked Java completely this time around by updating its XProtect such that it blocks all versions of Java on all version of Mac starting from OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Apple went about blocking Java plug-in earlier this month when a major vulnerability was discovered in Java code.
