How can I make sure a Java download is safe?

By gestawoman ·
File C application data was infected by a file that looked like it came from Sun Microsystems - Java. It could not be repaired. I deleted it. Now, how can I find a safe Java download and be sure the corrupted files are completely gone?

They, Sun Microsystems/Oracle, had a problem a few weeks ago but my understanding is that it has been dealt with. It would be best to contact them directly and confirm this.

Thank you for answering, I did contact them directed and deleted old version of Java and reinstalled new versions. It seemed to work fine then. Now, I seem to still have some technical issues. I wish I could find out where the infection came from in the first place. I do not think it was Sun Microsystems/ Oracle. I try to be careful as to what links and apps that I use, still this one was hidden in the Java app. It had words like "squarepants", and I have used many apps to try to be sure that the virus is completely gone.
