Java is your computer's main weakness [
Java was in 2012 definitely the biggest target for hackers, despite the fact that the U.S. authorities have been out and warn of weaknesses in Java. It shows security company Kasparsky Labs annual report.
dobes programs have in recent years been described as the biggest security risks on your computer, and cybercriminals have been very successful in breaking in through among other Flash Player and Adobe Reader. This year that changed, however, when Oracle's Java was the absolute top scorer in the number of attacks. It tells the Swedish website, Tech World.
According to security company Kasparsky Laps annual report, so ended up Oracle's Java, which is used among other things to Danish online bank, to be the target of 50 percent of all attacks. Second place is still held by Adobe Reader, which is hit by just over 28 percent of all attacks, and third place goes to Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer with the somewhat lower three percent.
There were warned
Back in January, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security out and warn against using Java, and suggested completely that you have to disable Java. It is very unusual that official authorities warn so specifically to disable a program, and often calls instead for that one takes safety and careful.
Java is now installed on more than three billion units worldwide, there is great potential for hacker attacks, and it is cross-platform. Mac computers are also at risk, as long as you use Java. One of the biggest problems with Java and other similar programs is that it is far from all the programs that are updated and therefore many older safety errors continue to cause problems.
