Is Java 7 version 22 safe to use?


This appears to be the latest version of Java. Are there any security issues with it?

(As a side note, When I searched your website for information on "Java 7 Version 22", every article on "Java" came up, and it was frustrating to wade through the thousands of articles to try and find one that was relevant.)

The latest Java version is 7 U17, so I'm not sure about version 7 update 22.

As long as there are no vulnerabilities reported then you can consider this version more or less safe, but you should always be cautious with Java and better leave it disabled and only use it on trusted websites.
