Oracle Releases Patch for Java Vulnerability
Experts still suggest disabling or uninstalling Java.
Oracle has released a patch for the Java bug which allowed hackers to install dangerous malware on any computer running a version 7 Java plugin. While experts are commending Oracle for their quick response, they are still stressing that Java will continue to be popular with attackers as it provides the highest infection rate among the most vulnerable applications. An attacker is likely to be two or three times more successful at infecting a computer when they do so through Java, than if they used the next most vulnerable application.
