You may or may not know, but right now, there is a huge Java exploit going around.  And it’s in Metasploit, which means that you don’t have to be a hard-core hacker to use it.

So, being that many LD games are written in Java, you should update Java now, before the compo.  So you can play all the cool games that are going to be made with more peace of mind that you’re not getting hacked.

Just run Windows Update, or “Software Update” on a Mac.  Or whatever your Linux distro’s update is.  Everyone’s got an update out, it’s that big of a deal.
