Java 7 security breach virus and malware I have finally formatted my ACER I7’s drive with a new Windows 7 Ultimate
This was due to what I think the latest series of debaucles on the security breaches of Java 7. Thanks Oracle! I started getting nasty viruses and pretty blatant malware internet browser toolbars installed. It was pure crap. So now? Don’t ask me about Java anymore. I don’t support it as I wasted many hours to get my system back in good order. Screw it.
I was even thinking of installing an open source Java charting software called AIOTrade. I won’t support it anymore. I am pretty well fully into Microsoft .NET or Visual C++. SO I am now looking for a .NET stock charting package. I think I got one called StockChartX but most are commercial.
1. Oracle, as a corporation, has no incentive to fix security issues. It doesn’t generate profit.
2. Taking a PR beating eventually provided enough incentive – it finally lit enough of a bonfire under their nuts to fix the issue.
After removing the latest Java, I can safely I say I don’t get mysterious Windows update daily.
In a nutshell, Java is outta here!
No need to flame me after working 8 years with it.
