The latest version of Java (v6u31) has been released including many security fixes. All Windows users should update Java as soon as possible – many recent virus infections we've seen have gotten in via old versions of Java. You will eventually get a notice to update, but it can sometimes take weeks, which can increase your risk of virus infection. To force an update check, click Start->Control Panel->Java. Click the update tab and then the 'Update Now' button. Vista/Win7, you may have to search for the Java Control Panel icon (often under Programs or 32 Bit Apps). If you don't have an Update tab, then watch for an square orange icon near your system clock indicating the update is ready to install.
