Good thing I disabled this on my systems.
Why doesnt oracle just buy these on the underground market? It costs them one hell of a lot more than $5k to fix each one of these problems, so they're paying the ransom either way.
Here we go again. I wonder when the web browsers, like Firefox will be able to display web pages that used to need Java, internally in the browser, in total safety (if that is doable)
I suppose you could integrate OpenJDK into the browser but who still uses Java applets. Oracle should not install the browser plugins by default since Minecraft is the only reason a lot of people need Java anymore.
Some game sites, like certain games on Thinks.com and also on Bestcrosswords.com use Java to display the interactive puzzles.
I think that has the same vulnerabilities as Oracle Java. You may luck into missing a specific exploit, but they're very close, so an exploit of one will likely affect the other.
I spend some time on pogo.com and they use Java for their games. I removed Java from one of my systems, but the other still has it because I use that one on pogo. It's a pain in the ass.
