Oracle confirms existence of another critical Java flaw

Quote:
When Oracle finally patched the CVE-2012-4681 Java 0-day that was being actively exploited in the wild, Polish firm Security Explorations immediately piped up to say they found a similar one that could very soon put Java users in danger again.

I turned it off in all my browsers. Will see if it is needed anywhere. If not, away it will go from my system. A Guy

The annoying thing is for people like me, who need to use Java, I need Java installed for Java applets on websites I visit, the JDK and using Open Office.

What has happened to Java?

With all the bad press lately, there are a lot of home user people shying away from Java at the moment.

It would be interesting to know how the corporate/business world are dealing with these issues as they could well have a huge investment and dependence on this technology to run their business.

I can't see the industry moving away from it in a hurry but they are going to be demanding some answers from Oracle corp.
