Unpatched critical Java vulnerability in latest patched version of Java?

Sun Microsystems JavaNo, this is not a repeat from the other day, or last month, or well, ever.

The Department of Homeland Security’s suggestion to disable Java in your browser, whether you are using a Mac, Linux box or Windows PC is still probably the best route for you to take, but I know you won’t.

Here’s the details…. ¬†As I warned our customers – the patched version of Java 7 is *still* vulnerable to exploitation.

To make it even more interesting, the exploit is available for the “bad guys” to purchase and use for a mere $5k.

You can read that story over here: $5000 will buy you access to another, new critical Java vulnerability

Again, to anyone reading this… ¬†If you can get along without it, you might consider the advice to disable the Java plugin. If you need assistance with that, please let us know. ¬†Optionally, if you feel your computer may have been exploited, seek professional technical support. We are happy to discuss the matter with you here in the Greenville SC area. ¬†Give us a call at 864-990-4748.

Be safe out there…
