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

    January 14, 2013   |   By zunipus

    Version: Oracle Java 7u11

    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:

    "Current Version is 7u10, not 9. Dangerous to use."

    December 11, 2012   |   By zunipus

    Version: Oracle Java 7u9

    Pros

    Um, it's sort of cross platform. It's sort of write once run anywhere, kind of. It sort of adds Internet functionality, usually.

    Cons

    The sandboxing is consistently found to be broken. Java has a horrifically bad reputation on Mac due to ~600,000 Macs being infected with drive-by Java malware in 2012, the single WORST Mac infection in history.

    No one should have Java running on their Macs except when connected to specific trusted websites.

    Install it only if you require it. Otherwise, turn it OFF in your web browsers or uninstall it.

    Summary

    The current version is Java 7u10, not 9. Don't use 9. Update IMMEDIATELY to 10. (BTW: The actual version number is Java v1.7 Update 10. Confusing, isn't it!)

    Java used to be all the rave and had some great goals. All of its goals failed. Java is FAILware. Java is an embarrassment and represents the single most DANGEROUS software you can install and run on your Mac. It's even worse than running Adobe Flash. Here's why: An estimated 600,000 Macs were infected via web drive-by infections with bot malware, turning the Macs into botnet zombies. This was the single worst Mac infection in history. Consistent Java sandboxing FAILs are being found in each new version.

    Just say NO! to Java unless you seriously need it. Even then, turn it OFF unless connected to specific trusted websites.

    Java is a catastrophe that already happened. Oracle, after buying Java along with Sun Microsystems, has severely neglected the Java platform such that Java sandboxing cannot be considered trustworthy. Don't use it unless you require it. Otherwise, either turn it off in all your web browsers or plain old UNINSTALL IT!
