Hi all!
Just saw this slashdot story about the increasing attacks on Windows through security vulnerabilities in the Jre.
The original article appeared here.
Although Oracle has provided a patch, dunno why this has been so much slashdotted slashdot_effect.

How is a vulnerability in the JVM the fault of Microsoft?

I think the title of this topic comes from the fact the report into security issues with JVMs was done by Microsoft, Joe.

Wow, that means when they fixed the JVM, Oracle was helping Microsoft?

Not sure I follow? What have Microsoft got to do with a JVM? They do not supply one any more.
