Thanks to reader Rob for notifying us that a new version of Java has been released.  Remove all older versions of Java before installing this update.

From Java's website:

We highly recommend users remove all older versions of Java from your system.
Keeping old and unsupported versions of Java on your system presents a serious security risk.
Removing older versions of Java from your system ensures that Java applications will run with the most up-to-date security and performance improvements on your system.

Another Potentially Malicious Email Making The Rounds

We received an email from a reader indicating that he has received several suspicious emails purporting to be from his ISP.  The emails indicate that his email space is running out and tells him to click on the link to increase the space.  Of course, the email is another example of social engineering attempts in email. I am wondering how many others are receiving this email and how wide spread it is.  Please let us know if you have seen these emails.
