Your java is vulnerable.
There’s an update, the update is vulnerable.
n days ago there was a zero-day exploit released for Java.
Sometimes I feel like a broken record, but what can you do?
- The safest thing to do is uninstall Java. Most users do not need it.
- If you cannot uninstall Java because you need it to run a legacy application, at least disable it in your browsers.
- If you absolutely positively must have it, keep it updated. (You can do this through the Java control panel applet on your Windows computer.)
Are you tired of me telling you these things? (I’m tired of saying them.) I found two resources for you that will save us the effort. Please feel free to bookmark these resources for future use.
Whenever you want to know is Java vulnerable to zero-day exploits this very simple dashboard will answer your question. (i.e. Can the most recent Java be compromised?) http://istherejava0day.com/
If you want more diagnostic information, including the most recent version of Java available, you may want to use this dashboard instead. http://java-0day.com/
(I don’t know how accurate these dashboards will be in the future. Currently, they appear accurate and informative. Objects appear closer in the mirror and don’t operate heavy equipment while using these websites.)
