I'm glad they finally patched Java, but it sure took them a long time.

Call me complacent, but I always feel safe running OS X. Patched or not. Laughing

One of these days something more serious is going to come along. I just hope Apple has the ability to respond in a timely matter. I don't even care if you have to restart. Wink

They must have fixed bunches at 158MB. I can't remember seeing a Java update this large before.
