A security issue with Java was just posted;

which included the following comment:

 

Apple has, however, apparently already moved quickly to address the issue, disabling the Java 7 plugin on Macs where it is already installed. Apple has achieved this by updating its "Xprotect.plist" blacklist to require a minimum of an as-yet unreleased 1.7.0_10-b19 version of Java 7. With the current publicly-available version of Java 7 being 1.7.0_10-b18, all systems running Java 7 are failing to pass the check initiated through the anti-malware system built into OS X.

 

Will this affect FMSAT on Mac servers?
