Itís not quite the development freeze Microsoft underwent during the Trustworthy Computing push, but itís a start for Oracle, which will delay the release of Java 8 until Q1 of next year, largely because the platform and browser plug-in is such a security disaster.

This year has done nothing but reinforce that notion. Start where you will, with any number of zero-days, watering hole attacks, or a pair of takedowns at Pwn2Own, Java has taken a beating from hackers in 2013 and apparently enough is enough.

My first thought is; why was security put on the back burner for so long. Now it's on the front burner where it should of been all the time.
A short term P and L Statement will show that security cost money and no return of cost. A long term P and L Statement will show security is a must or their will be no sales to have a return of cost from.
