Oracle’s Java platform seems to be in an endless battle with Adobe Flash to see which can take the crown as the most compromised platform on your computer. Last week Oracle rolled out 42 patches for known security holes — and this was just another day for the oft-attacked software.
Now Security Explorations of Poland has announced it has found a new Reflection API vulnerability that affects all Java versions, including 7u21, which was just released last Tuesday. “It can be used to achieve a complete Java security sandbox bypass on a target system,” Gowdiak wrote on the Full Disclosure mailing list on Monday.
Attackers can exploit this latest vulnerability to achieve a complete Java security sandbox escape, Gowdiak says, adding that he also sent proof-of-concept code to Oracle demonstrating an exploit.
There is no telling when Oracle will patch this latest flaw, but the company generally follows a Microsoft-like approach, rolling out updates in one big release.
If you cannot beat them Join them. A federal judge who worked as a lobbyist for the RIAA has already ruled pro RIAA as compared to other judges reviewing similar cases. This is a major win by the RIAA and will obviously go badly for any that draw her as a judge. I talk about this and a lot more. I also announce some upcoming format changes as we look forward to the next 5 years in where this show is going to go. Obviously the Ohana are going to weigh in as I make these changes and we will see how they go.. I have decided it is really time to focus on the format as the shows has not changed much in the past 6.5 years.
