We saw the writing on the wall and opted to fully remove Java from our Monthly Support clients’ systems. Looks like we were right on target. According to THN, after Oracle released an emergency patch for the Java flaw that was being exploited earlier this week, a new flaw has been discovered.
For those of you running Firefox, it’s been disabling Java in the browser for months now:
We recommend completely removing Java from your system. Head to your Programs and Features applet (for Win7 and Win Vista users) or Add/Remove Programs (for XP users) to uninstall Java. I easily say, “remove any version of Java that is installed,” but I have to pepper that with caution. You can easily damage your system if you uninstall the wrong program. So before making ANY changes to your system, always make sure you have a backup of your critical data.
