    Java Flaw

    Apparently there is a security flaw in java that prompted the Department of Homeland Security (United States) to issue a warning that people should disable Java. Seems like it is a pretty big flaw given what the article states they did. I've read that Apple and Firefox are disabling Java automatically so sounds serious.

    You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."

    seriously who uses java applets anymore? disable java TM plugin from browsers all the the time, except if you are a software developer and you know your stuff.

    The fixes in Java 7 update 11 have not done enough to make PCs secure.
