Articles about Java zero-day exploit

Oracle rushed out a patch for a Java flaw that was so serious the U.S. government advised users to uninstall the software. The fix might have come too quickly, however. “Developing critical software under pressure has only one consequence — even more bugs,” said Avira data security expert Sorin Mustaca. “I expect to soon see even more bugs and vulnerabilities related to this quick fix.”

“This is definitely a temporary fix,” said Sorin Mustaca, a data security expert with Avira, a German-based company that sells anti-virus software. “If you do a fix under a lot of pressure and very, very fast, then only one thing will happen: more vulnerabilities. So, for me, this is just the rain before the storm. I think it will get worse, it will get much worse.”
