+ - Homeland Security warns to disable Java amid zero-day flaw->

Submitted by Beeftopia
Beeftopia (1846720) writes "From the article: "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned users to disable or uninstall Java software on their computers, amid continuing fears and an escalation in warnings from security experts that hundreds of millions of business and consumer users are vulnerable to a serious flaw."

Hackers have discovered a weakness in Java 7 security, but "due to the number and severity of this and prior Java vulnerabilities, it is recommended that Java be disabled temporarily in web browsers as described in the "Solution" section of the US-CERT Alert."
