Homeland Security still says no to Java

The Department of Homeland Security says despite some fixes to Java, it continues to recommend users disable the program in their Web browsers, because it remains vulnerable to attacks that could result in identity theft and other cyber crimes.

And yet they don't say a word about things like Facebook, or online databases getting hacked, or a lot of other stuff that results in identity theft or worse.

Guess how much I don't care what DHS says. Their "concern" is selective at best. Let them speak to their fellow fed programmers who use Java on their websites.

The link discusses problems for Java 7 update 10 and is silent on the latest update (Java7 update 11).

Anybody with knowledge of the the latest update know if they have mitigated the problem?
