Emergency Java Fix Is Available, but Some Experts Still Worried
That said, not everyone is convinced that Java users are completely in the clear after updating to the latest version. Experts agree that the updated version of Java now blocks the zero day exploit (in part by making you click a button to run Java technology present on most websites). But some research programs, including Poland’s Security Explorations, suggest that there may be other Java vulnerabilities that haven’t been addressed. You can disable Java, but it’s hard to avoid Java on the Web, so if you plan to continue using it, grab the update.
