Oracle just pushed out Java Version 7 Update 11 and it looks like the
fix for the most recently reported Java bug. Or not ...

7u11 was available a week ago, apparently it still only fixes one of the
two recent critical problems ...

As I understand it, the fix Oracle released, changed a security
setting to "High". The actual code issues weren't addressed in
that short interval. I expect that will take time.

I was just prompted a couple day ago by Oracle. I have a suspicions that
since Oracle took over Java from Sun, many of the original key Java
programmers quit rather than working for Oracle and the remaining second
tier
just don't know what they are doing. That's why they seem to open new
vulnerabilities with every fix. Any veteran programmer knows this
phenomenon.

There was a piece in CACM a couple months ago about Oracle's mishandling
of all things Java. Corporations cannot be trusted any more.

But Oracle can be trusted to sue anybody not paying license fee for
including Java in their products.

Oracle, they would be the a--holes that slip the Ask toolbar to you if
you don't watch them like a hawk!

Yep! I've noticed it when they tried. But there are others, too, who try
to hook you to something if you're not careful. I noticed, for instance
that lately Paypal is trying the same tactics to entice you to take the
"Pay Later" option and they even give you a few $ credit if you do. This
is how a lot of banks hook you to their credit cards and once they got
you, they screw you with hogh interest rates.
