    "Safe Jan. 2103 Java flaw"

    January 14, 2013  |   By Bstendal

    Pros

    http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/13/u-s-agency-warns-of-java-software-problem/?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20130114
    Oracle fixed a security flaw in its Java software on Sunday, after the Department of Homeland Security warned users to disable Java software completely, citing a security hole that allows hackers to take control of their machines.

    Cons

    Would like lower prices and longer license term. Their two products: Malware and Advanced Care are visually pleasant... pretty, and more thorough than any other anti virus/ system care I have used in the 37 years I have used computers.

    Summary

    Looks good, works better than most others, automated updates, optimizes my computer. Highly recommended automatically daily without slowing my computer.

    Serious Flaw in Java Software Is Found, Then Patched
    By NICOLE PERLROTH

    6:53 p.m. | Updated Oracle fixed a security flaw in its Java software on Sunday, after the Department of Homeland Security warned users to disable Java software completely, citing a security hole that allows hackers to take control of their machines.

    "Java 7 Update 10 and earlier contain an unspecified vulnerability that can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system," the agency said in an alert issued last week. "This and previous Java vulnerabilities have been widely targeted by attackers, and new Java vulnerabilities are likely to be discovered."

    Very effective anti-virus and system care. Added benefits: choice of skins and lots of options for system automatic system care. I use both their Malware product and their System Care product.

    Looks good, works better than most others, automated updates, optimizes my computer daily without slowing the computer.
