Does Oracle patch for Java 7 fix the zero-day flaw?

Oracle has cranked out a patch for Java days after news of a zero-day exploit. But Oracle is short on details on what the patch fixes

Regardless, there's an update for Java that you should probably apply if you use the affected version. It probably fixes the flaws that Oracle has known about since April, but even if it doesn't it must fix something or there'd be no point in developing and publishing it.

If Oracle wants to continue being a respected, trusted software provider, it needs to do a much better job of cranking out updates in a timely manner, and it needs to significantly improve its communications to keep customers informed of what's going on.
