Re: JAVA: Fixing zero-day exploit could take 'two years'
Also from the article:
quote:Somehow, I don't think most users are going to wait around for "up to two years". It may turn out that Sun made a pretty smart sale...
...chief security officer of business security company Rapid7 HD Moore estimated that it could take up to two years for Oracle to fix the flaws found in the version of Java used to browse the Internet -- not taking into consideration any further exploits that are developed within this timeframe.
It seems like something of a lost cause, as he advised: "The safest thing to do at this point is just assume that Java is always going to be vulnerable. Folks don't really need Java on their desktop."
