Details:

Microsoft has phased out the MSJVM in our products, as provided for in the January 2001 settlement agreement with Sun. Microsoft provided public support for the MSJVM, including addressing specific security vulnerabilities, through December 31, 2007. After this date, Microsoft stopped providing public support for the MSJVM, including security updates, assisted support and code changes.

Microsoft's first priority is to help our customers have a safer computing experience. To that end, the security updates, support articles and migration tools developed prior to the December 31, 2007 deadline were made available for customers to download from the Microsoft website. As provided in the 2001 settlement agreement, Microsoft provided continued access to these updates until June 30, 2009.
