Bug in Plugin Check's status report is a security problem

Plugin Status (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/) says "Java(TM) Platform SE 7 U65" "Up to Date 10.65.2.20". This is wrong. I have already started installing U67 because U65 is obsolete. The false report likely persuades users not to update.

Plugin Status also says "Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.650.20" "Up to Date 10.65.2.20". I don't know yet if that is true or not. If the Platform update doesn't also update the Deployment Toolkit then I'll try to find that update. This is a big security problem because a different page reports that Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.650.20 has a known vulnerability.

There are several bugs in that bug report and it's still buggy. Thank you for pointing me to it though.
