Straight after installing "Java for OS X 2012-001" Software Update asks me to install "Java for OS X 2012-002", which has the exact same size (66.6 MB) and description (including the same two links: HT5055 and HT1222) as the former, which strikes me as odd.

The "Java for OS X 2012-001" is described on the apple support pages, but the "Java for OS X 2012-002" is not mentioned anywhere. Also searching on google does not yield any usable results.

What is your opinon? Am i paranoid? Did you also see this update?

Apple just issued a Mail covering "Java for OS X 2012-002", so it's legit.

mail about the second (re-shipped) update

I saw the 002 update, also. Apple's SOP seems to be to admit nothing unless and until there is rolling, flaming wreckage. So when there is an immediate update right after a corresponding normal update the safe assumption is that the first update broke something and second update (quietly) fixes it.
