Hi, Over time I have been updating the Java VM on my Mac with the latest releases, but just today I realized that in /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines there are actually a few JVMs installed: drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Jun 29 2011 1.6.0_26-b03-383.jdk drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Nov 1 18:45 1.6.0_29-b11-402.jdk drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 102 Mar 28 02:55 1.6.0_31-b04-413.jdk drwxrwxr-x 3 root wheel 102 Mar 16 02:15 1.7.0.jdk drwxr-xr-x@ 4 root wheel 136 Jan 20 03:33 JDK 1.7.0 Developer Preview.jdk All these JVMs are registered in the Java preferences app, actually the old (vulnerable) versions were still active and had a higher priority than the newer versions. This surprised me a bit. I have some questions about this….. - is it correct that the JVM installers do not remove older and insecure versions of the VM ? - in the Java preference panel: after installing a new version, why hasn't a newer version a higher "priority"? - can I just remove the older versions of the VM? - would it a good idea to have older versions removed automatically? cheers Dannes _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
