Oracle fixes Java.com website hole after heads-up from hacker group

The secretive hacker group known as YGN Ethical Hacker Group has done it again, exposing a vulnerability in a vendor website -- this time one owned by Oracle -- through assessment scanning. YGN says Oracle responded promptly to its notification about the vulnerability it found in www.java.com and fixed the hole.
YGN told Network World by email that the Oracle Security Alerts team has thanked it for the information provided about an "arbitrary URL redirect vulnerability" in www.java.com. YGN published advisory information about this vulnerability both on the public SecLists online and the hacker group's own website on Sunday.
Oracle had no immediate comment.
This interaction between YGN and Oracle, which took place over the last week, seems to have followed a far different course than the hacker group's recent interaction with McAfee, which ended last month with YGN disclosing it had found a vulnerability in the McAfee website before the security vendor had fixed it.
