Java Runtime Environment 1.7.0_09 with Security Fixes

Oracle has released an update to Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that fixes some major security vulnerabilities found on previous release of JRE. Java Runtime Environment is a requirement to run all of Java programs either online or offline. You will need Java Development Kit(JDK) to create your own programs. Java allows applications to be downloaded over a network and run within a guarded sandbox. Security restrictions are easily imposed on the sandbox.


Both JRE and JDK are available on almost every operating systems available which allows Java programs to run efficiently over multiple platforms and operating systems.

The following table lists some of the notable bug fixes included in this release:
