Update to Java Forces Users to Install Bing Toolbar or Not Get Security Fixes

herunterladen

I didn’t want to believe it, but on both of my Windows 7 Build 7100 (RC not RTM) machines the latest Java Update for Sun Java is presenting the Update and forcing me to install the Bing Toolbar.  Supposedly there is supposed to be  check box and text to allow me to choose otherwise, but it doesn’t show up.  I get only Next (which accepts the install) or Cancel (which won’t install the Java Update)

This is Likely a “bug” but It’s a fairly big, fairly nefarious one.  I haven’t had time to test on XP, Vista, and Win7 RTM.  But If you do let me know what you see.  As this is a pretty evil thing to do herunterladen.
