Privacy, Security, Encryption "In 2010, exploited Java vulnerabilities outpaced the exploit of Adobe Reader and Acrobat," Landesman, senior security researcher at Cisco, said. "Java was 3.5 times more frequently exploited than were malicious PDFs. That really spells out the need for paying attention to what's making the headlines but also paying attention to the types of things that aren't making the headlines."

It might be crap to you, but in the corporate world, the majority of the new software being developed is either Java or .Net based.


If you pulled you head out of your ass for just a second I was referring to Java being installed on end users computers that they use at home - I'd say a good portion of that statistic can be blamed on Sun paying OEM's to load Java onto desktops by default.

Ho! Did I hit a nerve point?

I was just refereeing to how important Java actually is.
