Re: Feds warn PC users to disable Java

It's settled. I blocked Java to protect all machines that may enter my network. It only broke 1 thing that I actually used-causes the Speedtest.net Android app to force close. No sites that I use or any other apps seem affected. I blocked it on a trial but keeping it blocked. Still allows my internal server to push Java applets to the browser plugins on my machines, without the plugin being an attack vector. Further, for the Debian laptop, I use NotScript for Chromium Browser(same function as NoScript for Firefox), which will only allow the plugin to run if I specifically allow it, covering me on outside networks and vpn. That is if the Openjdk is even vulnerable.
A fool thinks they know everything.

A wise person knows enough to know they couldn't possibly know everything.

There are zealots for every OS, like every religion. They do not represent the majority of users for either.
