Oracle reveals plans for Java security improvements

Quote:
Oracle plans to make changes to strengthen the security of Java, including fixing its certificate revocation checking feature, preventing unsigned applets from being executed by default and adding centralized management options with whitelisting capabilities for enterprise environments.

These changes, along with other security-related efforts, are intended to “decrease the exploitability and severity of potential Java vulnerabilities in the desktop environment and provide additional security protections for Java operating in the server environment,” said Nandini Ramani, vice president of engineering for Java Client and Mobile Platforms at Oracle, in a blog post on Thursday.

Do any of their "improvements" include a more seamless upgrade mechanism that doesn't constantly try to trick you into installing crapware?

Hopefully this will finally fix the endless number of Java security exploits.

Based on JAVA's track record, that does not seem likely.

Wanna bet that once the improvements are available, the very next day there will be some JAVA exploit announced and/or floating on the web?
