It can't target me because Java has never, and will never be installed.

I removed it over a year ago and will not go back. Now if we could get rid of Flash the world would be a better place. Java and Flash are the 2 most venerable programs on the PC.

I removed it when i saw the post by A Guy about a day ago about there being even more exploits after the newest release New vulnerabilities found in latest Java update Rarely see any sites that use it. Hopefully they start using something stronger or invent some software that's safer then java and websites stop using java.
