Another vulnerability discovered in Java

If you thought (or hoped) that security issues but by Java resolved with last update, released a week ago… don't lose hope for the next one update. A few days ago it was discovered a new vulnerability affecting all versions of Java 7including updateits most recent.

Last vulnerability has been discovered in reflection API and is present both in JRE plugin, JRE server and in JDK. Fortunately, the new ability exploit to take control of the system depends on how accession It permitted users.


The new flaw was verified to affect all versions of Java SE 7 (including the recently released 1.7.0_21-b11). It can be used to achieve a complete Java security sandbox bypass on a target system. Successful exploitation in a web browser scenario requires proper user interaction (a user needs to accept the risk of executing a potentially malicious Java application when a security warning window is displayed).

Unfortunately Java continue to be exploited by cybercriminals because it is installed on the 1 2 computers (Perhaps at a higher rate), thus occupying a leading place among the targets appealing to hackers. And Oracle He managed to create a rather bad reputation lately, due to security issues and vulnerabilities that still occur despite updatesecurity quite often.

If you accustomed to using Java (for different applications installedOr for a number of sites that accustomed to require Java to access and use), take great care to how use this program (I recommend using a browser separately to access sites that use Java, and disabling the Java plugin for other browsers; also does not hurt to have installed a antivirus good system). But if you do not need Java or can you be deprived of it, it is recommended uninstall it from your system (Control Panel> Oneinstall to schedule).
