Okay - I'm a little confused - my Java version says "Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.50.255 - 10.5.1.255"Is this part of the 1.7 series the article speaks of? Thanks.

If I am not mistaken, JRE 1.7 is 7, they are non consistent with versioning different components, as I recall.

Yes, and it's out of date too. The current release is Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.60.24 - 10.6.2.24.

In Norway most banks use a common (java) platform for log in to their online bank solutions. It seems this vulnerabillity has hit that solution hard, and now the banks are going public saying the consumers have to be responsible and update their java software.... My take is a bit different though....
