Java (not JavaScript) 0-day exploit in the wild ..
« on: August 29, 2012, 03:15:38 pm »
A very nasty 0-Day exploit of Java (all versions) is now active and there is no patch available.

I strongly suggest you disable Java in your browser until a patch becomes available.


Note: Java is not the same as JavaScript.  The only widespread Java controls for weather-related things are the old Davis scroller and the Astrogenics StormVue Java Control.

Better to be safe than have to clean up a mess later.
