JAVA Still messed up after faux patch SHUT IT OFF Dagnabit?

Oracle‘s recent patch to cobble up a fix for Java’s security hole is out. OK.

To boot, reports are circulating that out in the world, a fake patch is actually ANOTHER infection. Good grief.

So the sordid saga of Java stewardship under Harry Ellison’s Oracle slithers on…meanwhile, cable TV is rolling out a new reality program – “PC Java Wars” Rescue will NOT arrive on the giant Catamaran zig-zagging back and forth offshore.

Researchers (in a Threatpost report) say not only is the patch weak, ineffective, and an embarrassment but they went ahead and doubled down.

They have dug up another one while scanning the first.
In a word, “shut off Java in your browsers” – javascript seems ok but that’s a much weaker animal, even if tried to reach up and just nip at your wrist, not your arse
