Nearly all of us have software like Flash, Shockwave, or the Java Runtime Environment on our systems to add functionality, but they are a popular target for malware authors. In line with Microsoft’s security patches for this month, Adobe and Oracle have both released security updates to popular products on the same day. If you have one or more of these types of software on your system, then you should definitely make sure you have the latest versions installed to help keep your system as secure as possible.

Isn't it just amazing that after installing the JDK bloody yesterday, I need to install an update?

Watch out for bundled software! e.g Ask Toolbar, Norton/McAfee

Hehe, I don't need to. I use Ninite for installing JDK or JRE, which filters out Ask. And I don't even use Adobe Reader.

Watch out for terrible apps being installed...like Java.

Developing for Android needs this particular bit of badware (glaring at Google).
