Security researcher Adam Gowdiak has announced the discovery of two more vulnerabilities affecting the latest version of Java (Java 7 update 11). These are completely separate vulnerabilities from the still not yet fully repaired bug that caused the vulnerability prompting the latest Java update. Of course, it’s not exactly news, at this point, that Java is full of holes that hackers love to exploit. So why am I continuing to beat a dead horse? Primarily, because I continue to hear people dismiss concerns about Java’s security. Java is a sinking ship, folks… you can either hop in a lifeboat and get away or go down with the ship. The choice is yours.
