The Gist: This is a serious threat & we all should disable Java.
How to do that:
- “Chrome users should start by entering chrome://plugins in the browser’s address bar. Scroll down to Java and click the link to disable it. That was easy! The process is similar in Opera. First, enter about:config in the address bar. Click the Java heading to expand that section, un-check the checkbox, and click the Save button.”
- "IE and Firefox:Open Control Panel and launch the Java applet. If you don’t see it, switch to Classic View (in XP) or small icons (in Windows 7 or Vista).Click the Advanced tab and expand the item titled Default Java for browsers.Un-check the boxes for Microsoft Internet Explorer and for Mozilla family. You may need to click the item and press spacebar in order to clear the checkmarks.Click OK and you’re done.”
- "Just to be sure you’ve succeeded, visit the Java test page at http://java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp from each of the browsers you use.”
