Oracle issues update to Java to fix major malware vulnerability

Oracle has issued an update for its Java software to fix a security flaw so severe that it led the U.S. government to issue a note last week urging computer users to disable Java.

Because of the severity of the vulnerability, Oracle said it "strongly recommends" that users update their software as soon as possible.
