A very sad news for the computer users that Oracle‘s Java software  has effected many     web browsers. It has come to the knowledge that  zero-day flaw  enters in to the computer and damage your computer by spreading  malware and to be more précised the malware infection found so far is the Poison Ivy Trojan. Interesting to note that it is so lethal that its is capable of exploiting  any platform, including Apple’s OS X.

Web security company FireEye  has revealed that on 26 August they have found symptons of its presence. One another company Websense  also criticzed that the Java exploited as it had been added to Blackhole, a popular hacker’s tool that bundles numerous exploits and tries each in turn until it finds one that will work against a personal computer.They both put stress on the point that Oracle has to provide an update for Java otherwise its user will bear significant losses.


If you know you don’t need Java, uninstall it.

One thing which really surprised me that all those people who has java installed in their computer majority of them actually doesn’t need it. Actually for the understanding of people relatively few websites still use Java – it’s mainly get attention just because of  few web based game.Secondly  the problem is that you might need JAVA outside of the web browser e.g. for  the popular Libre Office  program (free alternative to Microsoft Office)  and some other user friendly offline program.So then you can go to the plan B.

Plan B, the second safest option would be  to disable Java.You can see following video to understand how you can do this for different web browsers.


There appears to be no word from Oracle also I haven’t found any acknowledgement from Oracle that the problem is being investigated.What they should have to do is to come out front accepting the fact that there are lapses in there system and chalk out the date when they will get control of the leakages in their network.
