I didn't find a security announcement mailing list for Java (from Oracle). How to get notified about new Java patches? I am not interested in other Oracle products.

For example Apple provides such a list with signed mails: (Security-announce -- Product security notifications and announcements from Apple)

You can subscribe to Oracle's security advisory mailing list by following the instructions at

You should also read for more information. In particular, the section relating to third party bulletins.

thank you. It's a huge privacy issue with Oracle OTN account. They wish to have all my corporate and personal data. They need only email address. – Fyodor Nov 16 '12 at 20:05
@fyodor78, that is annoying. Do what everyone else does, and lie on everything other than the email address. You can really have fun with it: e.g., I am the CIO for a company that makes over $1 billion in revenue each year and has 3 employees, my main residence is in Antarctica, and I first heard of Oracle through telegram. – D.W.
