The February Critical Patch Update for Java SE was recently released from Oracle.  February has brought the release of 14 patches from Oracle that are categorized as Critical.  As stated on the release page "All of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password."

This alone is reason enough to fast track this package into your change management solution and deploy as quickly as possible.

On Tuesday, Adobe released an update for Shockwave Player (APSB12-02) and RoboHelp for Word (APSB12-04). The odd question on tuesday was: What happened to APSB12-03. Today, we learned the answer: Another bulletin from Adobe, APSB12-03, accompanied by a patch for Adobe's Flash player.

Sadly, with the odd release date, this bulletin has fallen a bit between the cracks. However, you should apply the patch *QUICKLY* as at least one of the vulnerabilities has already been exploited in the wild.
