SolarWinds Releases Software Update to Automatically Deploy

SolarWinds Releases Software Update to Automatically Deploy Oracle's
Java 7 Patch 
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 --   SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a
leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software,
today announced that it has updated SolarWinds Patch Manager, its
patch management product, to enable IT professionals to manage any
exposure they may have to the latest Java vulnerability that was
recently announced. Effective immediately, IT professionals can fully
deploy the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 patch to their
environments using the 30-day free trial version of this product. 
Yesterday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security reiterated its
warning to Java users that the widely used Web plug-in still posed
risks for Internet users, even after Oracle patched the software to
prevent hackers from exploiting a zero-day vulnerability. 
SolarWinds' patch management solution helps IT pros protect servers,
networks and applications against known vulnerabilities and pass
patch compliance audits through an automated patch management
process. By downloading the evaluation of SolarWinds Patch Manager,
IT pros can quickly and easily deploy the JRE 7 patch and be up and
running in a matter of hours, as opposed to days if using scripts or
doing it manually. 
"For many, if not most, organizations, Java is a critical
infrastructure required to use a large number of business
applications," said Lawrence Garvin, SolarWinds Head Geek. "This
critical update to our free SolarWinds Patch Manager evaluation gives
the IT professional community access to a tool that can help them
distribute the fix in a timely fashion." 
How to Deploy the JRE 7 Patch Using SolarWinds Patch Manager 
Step 1: Download the free 30-day SolarWinds Patch Manager evaluation. 
Step 2: Configure SolarWinds Patch Manager using the Evaluation
Guide (instructions for publishing the JRE update are found on page
30).
 Step 3: For WSUS, approve the update for installation. For
ConfigMgr, add the update to an existing Deployment Package.

vulnerability, check out Garvin's blog post in PatchZone.org, a
