Mozilla/Foxfire - Insecure Java Plugin in Firefox

Mozilla is disabling older versions of the Java Deployment Toolkit plugin for Firefox users, in a bid to block attacks against a newly-discovered Java security hole that attackers have been exploiting of late to install malicious code.

In fact, you need to update to SE 6u20 if you haven't yet. Best method is offline and watch for any pre-checked toolbar offers.

Yeah, I'm updated to 20, just thought I'd mention that the developer's toolkit and whatever they disabled a few weeks ago didn't affect functionality on average java sites.

Got it! Thanks, I wondered if I'd notice anything since I disabled the update 20 Toolkit.

I have noticed any ill effects. I did notice that one cannot uninstall that addon; one can only disable it.
