FileHippo Update checker detected JRE 1.6.0.18 release:

http://www.filehippo.com/download_java_runtime

Is this a vulnerability patch? I scanned my machine w/ PSI around noon, no mention of update. Checked FileHippo---VOILA! JRE 6 u18.

Is this a Beta? Sorry if I posted this in the incorrect forum, or am guilty of asking dumb questions- I'ze jes a noob trying to figger' all this new-fangled 'puter stuff...

But I'm learnin' quick and my formerly infested w/bad stuff & DREADFULLY out-of-date 5 year old Dell 2200 notebook is humming nicely, fully patched and Malware FREE thanks to this site and others like it!

It is an enhancement hence Secunia are still showing update 17 as secure.

I have installed it - no problems with it.

Secunia picks up the new update as version 6.0.180.7

So have I. Thank you for your lightning quick response, I will look for the release notes @ Sun. Funny thing though, I went to the Java verification page-- http://www.java.com/en/download/dt_verify.jsp?plug... --it says:

(unknown source)
Verifying Java Version

Congratulations!
You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 17).


But the test page tells me
(unknown source)
Your Java is working

Your Java configuration is as follows:
Version 6 Update 18...


HUH???
