1/12/13 The (JAVA) issue is so large that the Computer Emergency Readiness Team at the Department of Homeland Security has urged users to disable Java. The governmental organization says in a release that the vulnerability "is being actively exploited" and that "exploit code is publicly available." US-CERT recommends that Java be disabled in the browser until an update is pushed out by Oracle.

It's easy to disable JAVA temporarily in browsers. (See Link)

IS IT SAFE YET???

Yes, I would like to know if this has been fixed. You can't use the Internet without Java.

R3, that's not true these days. Not that many sites use java in the browser any more. It's getting rarer and rarer.

"According to Reuters, the security firm Kaspersky Lab estimates that Java was used in 50 percent of all attacks in which hackers broke into computers by exploiting software bugs."

Okay, but when will they fix it?

All I know is that Datalounge had been freezing up on me for weeks--and now that I disabled it I'm having no problems.

I dont have Java on my Windows 7 PC. And it works as good as new.
There are only a few sites that require it.
Personally I think it slows down computers.

It's a trick.

Apparently this is still an issue. Firefox won't let me activate the add on for the newest version of Java.

I have Java but don't really know what I need it for - I disabled it, but may just get rid of it altogether.

This thread is so racist, once again, you don't like Asians so they want you to stop buying Indonesian made products. Fuck yourself AIDS infested homos.

Oracle keeps putting out emergency patch versions now. Another was released this week after the January release was still deemed not secure.

I'm so glad someone posted this. I just got hammered with numerous viruses and it was a java exploit. I'm not a computer savvy at all, so I removed the threats, found out that I have a vulnerable version of java (6, number 24) so I uninstalled it. Will I have problems with my computer now with it removed?

R15 I uninstalled Java several weeks ago instead of just disabling it and haven't noticed any difference at all with my computer itself, MS Office, internet, etc.

Thanks a lot for responding R17.

I completely uninstalled JAVA from my computer back when they first said to disable it weeks ago, and I have had no problems with not having it. There have been maybe two sites that gave me a pop-up saying that they used JAVA, but I was still able to use the site with no problem. So considering all the issues they're having, I have no intention on even bothering to install it again.
