J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) & Java SE Developer Kit (JDK) Update 8
Sun has released Update 8 to for JRE 5.0 for download.  As an earlier diary discussed, versions prior to 5.0, Release 6, allowed applets and/or applications to call earlier unpatched versions.  What is the risk to me?  Having the ability to call earlier, unpatched versions could potentially allow an attacker to run her/his code of choice along with it.  The Java Runtime Environment and Java Developer Kit both have release 8.0 available for download here.
