Java issue with 10.7.5 update

Hey Guys.

The latest update 10.7.5 removes the Java Preferences App in the Utilities folder. Now how am I supposed to set the 32bit option to the first priority? Why do that? Why not warn of it in the description of the update??

Anyone?

I don't think it was 10.7.5 that did that to you, it was an Apple Java update afterward that did it and the Java Pref removal was mentioned in the notes.

How do we set 32-bit default now?

He has a valid question. Locking the java plugin at 64-bit is silly and does nothing for security. If Apple was interested in security they wouldn't make a second class citizen of Java and Flash. It is in the creation of the second class that gave rise to the first OSX virus. Which posed as a Flash installer and utilized a Java security flaw that had already been patched in the non-apple version of Java. The security problem with Java isn't Java or Flash, it's cultural and Apple should return to a culture of everything being awesome and no black sheep. It is absolutely ridiculous for them to remove the Java Preferences App without moving the functions to System Preferences or at least the Safari preferences. It's got to be somewhere. I just need to set the default mode to 32 bit. Any help would be appreciated.

There has never been a Mac OS X virus in the wild. Flashback is a trojan, not a virus. Mac Virus/Malware FAQ

Any resolution to this...?

I'm facing similar issues of my Mac mini after installing the Java Update. Java is not working on certain websites at all.
