Q.  I sometimes read about Java vulnerabilities.  How I check that my Java is up-to-date?

A.  To check the Java plugin in your browse you can go here:
http://www.java.com/verify/

Or in Windows go to the control panel.
Search for "Java"
Click on the "Java" icon.
Click on the "update" tab.

By default Java installations get regular updates
so this manual checking isn't usually necessary.
