Oracle Serious About Java Security???Maybe

We’re not ready to tell you we think it’s safe to reactivate your Java browser plugin???in fact, just the opposite???but we will say that Oracle is at least giving the appearance they’re now serious about addressing browser-side Java’s safety. Early last week they issued a security patch that fixed either 41 or 42 Java security issues, depending on what website you’re reading.

Excuse us if we don’t seem too impressed. At this juncture all we’re willing to do is say with utmost snark, ???It’s about time.???
