At one time there was much talk of the dangers of using Java but everything now seems to have gone quiet.
Does anyone know whether the problems have been resolved and if it is now safe to put our heads above the parapet again?
I think its fair to say Java now is currently fairly secure. I think its also fair to say that just like running flash and ActiveX, running Java makes your browser/PC a lot more insecure than it does by simply not having it installed.
It is only secure until the next well known exploit comes along.
There aren't many websites which need it now really, is there any specific reason you want to reinstall it?
