Hi,

I have installed the Java browser plug-in but I receive messages about it being insecure.

I've installed the following packages and have used the nsplugin USE flag where appropriate:

oracle-jdk-bin-1.7.0.51
oracle-jre-bin-1.7.0.51
emul-linux-x86-java-1.7.0.51


However, when I disable it and visit about:plugins I see that it is listed as such:

Code:

Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_45

    File: libnpjp2.so
    Path: /opt/oracle-jdk-bin-1.7.0.51/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
    Version:
    State: Disabled (STATE_VULNERABLE_UPDATE_AVAILABLE)
    The next generation Java plug-in for Mozilla browsers.


Why is it saying that the Plug-in version is 1.6.0_45 if everything I installed says it is 1.7.0.51? The plug-in works perfectly so it would be a shame to have to avoid using it due to security concerns. If anyone could tell me how to fix this I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

Code:

Available 32-bit Java browser plugins
  [1]   emul-linux-x86-java-1.7  current
Available 64-bit Java browser plugins
  [1]   sun-jre-bin-1.6  current


Ah, I see now. I sort of merged my post into one question but forgot to add that the newer (1.7) JRE is also said to be vulnerable. Any idea where I can get an updated/secured JRE?
