Apple released two Java updates shortly after the company disclosed to Reuters that a small number of its employees’ Macs had been hacked via the same vulnerability within the Java plug-in that had been used against Facebook. Java for OS X 2013-001 is for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and 10.7 Lion while the Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 13 is specifically for 10.6 Snow Leopard; both bring Java SE 6 up to version 1.6.0_41. The updates are available via the App Store app or Software Update and direct download, and Apple reminds you to quit any Web browsers and Java applications before installing either one. With multiple vulnerabilities listed on Apple’s page outlining the security content for these releases, it’s a good idea to grab the Java update for your system as soon as you can.

How Loud Are Your Mac's Fans?
When they get hot, Macs turn on various internal fans to keep components cool. The noise can be annoying, but just how loud is it? If you have an iOS device with a built-in microphone, you can download one of many free sound meter apps (search on
decibel in the App Store) and see if you're subjecting your ears to a truly unreasonable noise level.
