Apple is working at top speed fixing bugs as it releases an update for iOS 6 as well as patching a Java vulnerability that came to light when the company was hacked this week. While the iOS 6.1.2 software update may have fixed the calendar flaw in Microsoft Exchange, there’s no word on whether it fixed the battery issues some users have been experiencing.

At the same time, Reuters reports that some Apple workers had been hacked when they visited a software developers website that had been infected. Apple engineers had found that the infection came from an exploit in Java software used as a plug-in on Web browers, the same one used against Facebook and Twitter. To protect its users from the Apple Java hack, the company has pushed out an update for Java on OS X. You may not have been infected, but it might be a good idea to update your devices to cover up any vulnerabilities.
