    "Oh great, a patch on the last patch is out"

    January 14, 2013  |   By zunipus

    Pros

    If you're an idealist who dreams of utopia and magic flying unicorns leaping over rainbows, this used to be your favorite programming language.

    Cons

    Now Java is the single most dangerous software you can run on your Mac! Just Turn Java Off.

    Summary

    It's not gonna die. We're stuck with it. Oracle RUINED it. So much for the concept of 'sandboxing'. That's blown to hell. Java 7u11 is a patch on the fracked up patch in Java 7u10 that FAILed. We're in for more of this fecal splattering in the future, no doubt. Thank Oracle.

    Just Turn Java Off.

    But a big thank you to Apple and their XProtect system built into 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 for Just Turning Java Off, in a hurry, immediately after this latest Java exploit catastrophe was announced. That's Apple on-its-toes and I like it!

    I've written a pile of stuff about Oracle's Java cluster frack-up here:
