Time to put the beans to rest

Yesterday brought with it another Java security breach. It is security breach that doesnt yet have a fix for it (0-day), so short of disabling Java on your computer, you are out of luck.

Im continually amazed that we keep running this piece of software, but I guess I shouldnt be, given people’s track record of running insecure software (think older Internet Explorer browsers on windows).

My dilemma as a Danish citizen is the fact that we are forced to run Java applications from a certain vendor in order┬áto access pretty much anything from our online banking, to our communication with the government. Ofcourse, the vendor in question doesnt seem to think there’s an issue at all.

I disagree. After countless Java security breaches its time we stop using Java alltogether.
