According to an article online:
"The US Department of Homeland Security warned Thursday that a flaw in Java software is so dangerous that people should stop using it.
The recommended solution was to disable Java, which typically runs as a plug-in program in web browsers."
Hackers who get people to visit booby-trapped websites can exploit the Java vulnerability to execute code on computers, according to security firms that have backed up the warning.
