US government tells computer users to disable Java


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is advising people to temporarily disable the Java software on their computers to avoid potential hacking attacks.

The recommendation came in an advisory issued late Thursday, following up on concerns raised by computer security experts.

Experts believe hackers have found a flaw in Java's coding that creates an opening for criminal activity and other high-tech mischief.

Java is a widely used technical language that allows computer programmers to write a wide variety of Internet applications and other software programs that can run on just about any computer's operating system.

Oracle Corp. bought Java as part of a $7.3 billion acquisition of the software's creator, Sun Microsystems, in 2010.

Oracle, which is based in Redwood Shores, Calif., had no immediate comment late Friday.

Just about all malware, trojans and secret botnets that cause major DDoS attacks that bring major websites down are found in java scripts. 

I have them disabled using a browser add on/extension that let's me allow them per site if I need to.

How do you think google analytics work?

Anonymous and other cyber terrorists are taking advantage of this common vulnerability.

Most people's computers  are parts of botnets and don't even know it.

People are replicating credit card and banking accounts using java script. It's really easy.
