Oracle updates Java, security expert says it still has bugs

Comments (3)

Hate to sound techie here, but it’s not the Java programming language that’s at issue here. The language is used everywhere, and is essentially the language used to write apps for Android devices. The problem here is with the Java “plug-in” — software used by a web browser to display certain specialized programs written in the Java language. This plug-in is impotant to be sure — used by many websites to provide sophisticated tools like financial charts. But the Java LANGUAGE is a much larger thing that is in no way being qeustioned.

Oracle had better put major resources into bullet-proofing Java. Java has been and is a great idea. It would be a shame if developers started to abandon it over security flaws.
