Java Runtime Environment PET Version 7 Update 7 Subject description: jre-7u7-i586.pet[
This is the latest Java update for Puppy Linux in PET format. I thought that would be very useful for those who have a full install of Puppy and can't make use of the SFS version as in my case. I tested it today with Firefox (15.0) and Google Chrome (20.0xxx). It should work with Seamonkey, too.
There was an instance that I had rad about where a java update had been corrupted and was installing malware that had the capability of allowing installation of other nasties as well as installing a rootkit on MS pcs.
I do not think it effects linux, but you can never tell.

Sadly, this is a vulnerability in Java itself. If this file is the official JRE, it's going to have the same vulnerabilities. The problem isn't with the operating system (afaik.)
Perhaps someone will release a dotpet of the latest JRE (where they supposedly fixed the security hole)
