beware of Java application Java application is used with many website..When you open one of website, sometimes there are instruction for udpating java application before opening the next page.. And the process is the effective way for malware spreading.. The best way for you now, is non active your java application in your computer... This is emergency way for avoiding your computer or gadget from malware which using the "spot" in Java newest edition (version 1.7 update 6)...Black hole is behind in that spot of Java application.. You should be careful for any instruction for updating Java in your computer.. You should check again your browser setting..Java is considered as pluggin for every browser..So you can disable java application.. Maybe this is old way, but it is effective for preventing your computer or gadget from the malware..Right?? remember, the data in your computer is your asset..Imagine like that and now you prevent your computer...

Thanks I think I had a incident like that the other day but my firewall or my virus protection pick it up . I delete the backdoor virus quickly hope it was all gone . I was not aware that it could have been the java update , thanks for the share .

Is this true? But isn't it that Java is a trusted site/software to use? I have been updating my Java every time some newer version comes up and haven't found any problems with it yet. Has there been any reported cases about this? Won't the owner of Java or the one who made it would know this and have any corrective actions so that malware spread won't occur?

I have installed 'NoScript' add-on to my FireFox and it's effectively working. Whenever I am surfing, this add-on allows scripts from the websites that I've allowed and blocks all other scripts from any site. Even if some sites that I allowed embed codes/scripts from other sites, they are blocked. It's a must for people who surf a lot.
