That's a critical flaw in the patch that was rushed out because of the high profile less severe flaw.

Ism do you have an opinion on Oracle?

I don't have much of an opinion of Oracle. I stay mostly uninvolved and uninterested in the politics behind Java. I will say, it's to be expected - a large company acquires a product, they're going to tend to rush things and not spend as much time focusing on it. Hopefully the bug gets fixed soon, but at least the word is out there so people know not to use that update.

I'll also say that I do have some respect for Oracle, and frankly, I'm glad/surprised they're touching Java at all. After they acquired Sun and then started laying off Java workers, I was afraid Oracle Java was going to go completely stale, and we'd only have the OpenJDK implementation features to rely on. But since Oracle keeps pushing on, it gives OpenJDK the fodder it needs to keep pace.
