Oracle to issue huge security patch addressing 36 Java vulnerabilities

 

Oracle will issue its first patch update of 2014 on Tuesday and it just so happens that it'll be one of its biggest ever that includes a slew of security patches, many of which address vulnerabilities in Java.

The Critical Patch Update will address 144 flaws in hundreds of Oracle products, 36 of which apply to vulnerabilities in Java SE, including 34 that are bugs that can be exploited remotely by an attacker without requiring authentication.

 If you use 32-bit and 64-bit browsers interchangeably, you will need to install both 32-bit and 64-bit Java in order to have the Java plug-in for both browsers.

Wow.  No wonder a lot of people don't install Java.

I uninstalled my Java several months back and have not run into a single instance where I've needed it.

 

Talk about Unsafe Surfing...it simply seems like way too much of a risk.

 

 

I've recommended to several people I know to uninstall it and then see how long they go before they surf or run into an issue where they need it.

Already being pushed out.  I have seen a handful of company computers popping up a notice to update from Java 7 Update 45 to Java 7 Update 51.  We have to keep Java for company computers as some of our vendor portals still use that for table and webpage layout construction.

I go to one website that needs it for chat.  I don't need the chats. 

 

I keep Java installed as a browser add-on, but Firefox lets you deactivate add-ons.  Y' never know ...
