ALERT: Yet another Java 0day

Quote:
Java is at the center of yet another security storm after Polish security researchers found not one, but two new separate zero-day flaws in the Web plug-in software.

Web users are once again warned to disable Java immediately to prevent any infection on production machines or networks. Read this

Amid a serious security flaw in the latest version of Java 7, where even the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned users to disable the plug-in, here's how you do it.

Security firm Security Explorations submitted information about the bugs to Oracle, the developer of the Java 7 software, including proof-of-concept exploits that prove the bugs exist. However, in one of the cases, Oracle believes this is "allowed behavior," suggesting an apathy on the company's part to fix the alleged flaw.

The two zero-day flaws are the latest in a number of problems affecting the Java plug-in, forcing Oracle to patch the software twice with emergency patches this year alone.

If you've not already ripped Java out of your system, I'd suggest you do it asap;

Cheers :)

I got rid of Sun Java a while back and have my browser set to allow java and handled through no script, as default. Will this be ok?

If you got rid of it, you should be fine - would recommend disabling it anyway, just to be sure.
