As you know there is much talk on the Web about the latest Java vulnerability, presumably coming from China. As I use Java a lot (Being a non Geek !!) and that this is rumored to be quite serious I would like your opinion on the matter. The usual remedy on the Web is either to uninstall/disable Java altogether!
When I did this however, I found that a lot lot of my favorite websites just did not function (At least not fully !). In particular my online crosswords which I really like. So then as I use Firefox exclusively I downloaded No-script (Can remember that you use it yourself from previous article), and have used it sparingly (No White list's as yet).
