Java 7 Update 17
Well, we all knew it was coming.
Security Alert CVE-2013-1493 - update here.
By my count that's the 4th one this year. I have a tenner that says we'll make 5 by Easter.
This Security Alert contains 2 new security fixes for Oracle Java SE. Both of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password.

Id really like to whitelist java to only the local intranet. Any ideas? The best i can do is get IE to prompt with the yellow bar for non approved domains.

You could configure a deployment.properties file with bogus proxy settings, that way it wouldn't connect to anything outside your network.

The researchers found that the latest version of Java, version 1.7.17, is only in use by a dismal five percent of users, and many versions are months or years out of date — just begging to be exploited.
The most widely-detected version of Java currently in use is version 1.6.16. Over 75 percent of browsers are using Java versions which are at least 6 months old, whereas nearly two-thirds are a year out of date, and 50 percent of Java versions in use are over two years behind the times in respect to Java vulnerabilities.
All in all, the researchers say that the vulnerable population of browsers is pegged at a staggering 93.77 percent.

what do they expect when by the time youve found theres an update and tested it theres another one. they would do better actually testing it then releasing updates every few months not days same as flash

Well, I would have lost my tenner, but I was close: another Java 7 update is due out on Tuesday.
Ars Technica are reporting that it is Java 7 Update 21, but don't explain what happened to update 18, 19 and 20 (update 17 is the latest one available for download). So technically maybe I was right? Who even knows any more.
