Sun fixes severe Java vulnerabilities

Post by The Masked Marauder » Wed Oct 10, 2007 10:24 pm

Security experts are warning anyone running Java on their computer needs to upgrade their software immediately, regardless of platform. The reason? Sun just plugged several severe vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment that could leave computers open to severe compromise.

JRE updates seem to be coming out faster than NoScript updates lately. :)

I think I read where he just got married. History proves that will slow him down. I've seen it countless times. No offense to any that has had this happen too. I'm just saying. I'm married myself.. and yes hobbies takes a backseat. ;)

I'm starting to see a pattern here...

So all you have to do to find a wife is writing a Top5 extension? I should try that... :lol:

Almost 40 myself, never been married not even close, not a player or anything of the sort, quite happy living alone after seeing how my parents lived and then various friends over the years, gotten to settled in my ways to have some woman come in and mess up a perfectly good and working system. viva la freedom! :mrgreen:

orph (wrt your sig):

We of course all know Murphy's Law: Everything that can go wrong will go wrong.

But there actually are some lesser known corollaries:
  • What can not go wrong will nevertheless go wrong.
  • The effort to improve things will make everything even worse.
  • Trying not to do anything so nothing can go wrong will go wrong.
