What do you do to minimize the security risks created by Java?
RomanZ 2 years ago
In my experience, two of the greatest risks to system security are Flash and Java. Flash has a pretty central place in web design, as those of use who have used iPads, iPhones and Android 2.1 or earlier are well aware. Hopefully the widespread use of Java will fall off now that Adobe has killed support for development of flash for mobile platforms and HTML5 is on the rise. Java, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be going anywhere and remains a popular vehicle for exploits. What do you do at your company to minimize the risks that are created by using Java?
