    Description

      Hey, the Minecraft launcher isn't downloading the latest version of Java/hasn't been updated to the latest version of Java. It is downloading/using version 1.8.0_25 instead of using version 1.8.0_31. I believe it is unsafe to use 1.8.0_25 as security holes have been discovered for this Java version which have been patched for the latest version (which is 1.8.0_31, from time of this post).

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Copy Minecraft.exe (version 1.6.5) into empty folder

      2. Run Minecraft.exe

      It will now download Java version 1.8.0_25, the launcher needs to be updated to the latest Java (1.8.0_31).
