Windows 7: Getting rid of the Sun infection

Getting rid of the Sun infection

Anyone know the percentage of malware that uses java or flash to exploit the system? I decided to boycott it completely and my computers have had no crashes since, even running xp without an antivirus.

So how do you get around using the internet with no java or flash?

The article I posted earlier today will give you a good idea of the drive-by downloads with vulnerable Adobe and Oracle SunJava in the test group. See BLADE: Hacking Away at Drive-By Downloads
