Java Hack Still Not Fixed

Print Friendly

The hack of Java (JDK7 to be specific) has still not been fixed as of 1/14/2013. To protect yourself you should disable Java in your browser. I came across the following concise instructions at KSL.com:

How to disable Java:
Chrome
Type “chrome://plugins” into address bar. Find “Java” and click “disable.”

Firefox
Go to “Tools,” click “Add-ons” and then “Plug-ins” on the left.
Select “Java (TM) Platform …” from the list on the right.

Safari
Click “Preferences” in the Safari menu. Click “Security,” uncheck “Enable Java.”

Internet Explorer (last three versions)
Click “Tools,” then “Manage Add-ons.” In the dropbox below “Show,” select “All Add-ons.”
Under the category “Group,” select “Oracle America, Inc.” Select all, click disable.

RESTART ALL BROWSERS.

When this gets fixed just follow the same instructions and ENABLE rather than DISABLE the plugin.
