I am no software expert, but would this exploit affect a machine running a 64 bit OS? And also, how can a person find out if their affected and if so, how to fix it.
This crap will never quit.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
thunderdan602:would this exploit affect a machine running a 64 bit OS?
Both 32 and 64-bit systems are affected, Dan.

I never, ever install Java on any systems. It's just not worth the risk. I don't even install Adobe products except on virtual machines that use Sandbox software.

That may not be enough protection if I'm reading the article right,.......
" It's an especially nasty bug that would allow an attacker to worm his
way out of the confines of a sandbox, where normally users' main systems
are safe from what takes place inside the Virtual Machine."
This negates the whole idea behind using a sandbox for protection.

True dat, reilneil. If not a pre-req for my kids to run Minecraft, I would have uninstalled Java from every machine in my house long ago.
When I write software, I try to make it cross-platform, but I never even consider writing it in Java anymore.
Why is it that everything Oracle touches turns to crap? And could I get some people working on some open-source USB extensions for an open-source version of VirtualBox please?
P.S.: Love the Dr. Evil icon Paul!
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I think he means that he only installs adobe in sandbox, and doesn't install java at all.
i really like that you are giving information on core and advance java concepts. i found your information very helpful indeed.thanks for it.
