WEST PALM BEACH, Florida, January 12, 2013 - The Department of Homeland Security on Thursday night warned users to temporarily disable Java software to avoid a cyber attack on their computers. The Department of Homeland Security’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team issued a vulnerability notice, “to address a vulnerability in Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 and earlier that is currently being exploited in the wild. This vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable systems.”

The notice further recommends, “that Java be disabled temporarily in web browsers as described in the "Solution" section of the US-CERT Alert and in the Oracle Technical Note "Setting the Security Level of the Java Client."

According to the Department of Homeland Security, the notice came after the discovery that a vulnerability in the software allows attackers to execute a code on PCs running Java. Furthermore, criminals are already exploiting this vulnerability via “explore kits,” which are available online for those interested in accessing other computers to commit online crimes.

The “vulnerabilities” allow hackers to access computers via the software, accessing all types of personal information that is stored on the computer or monitoring current activities on a computer.

Ain't technology grand?
