If you didn’t uninstall it, then think again about this.
Here is how to uninstall or deactivate Java from your system.
Oracle has announced that they fixed with the update on February 1st only a part of the problems originally planned to be fixed. The second part of the problems will be fixed with the update to be delivered on February 19th.
Is this the end of the story ?
No, I think that this is just the beginning. There will be more bugs and as we wrote already, Oracle has received various vulnerability reports from security researchers around the world. Their only reaction was to remain silent instead of providing a timeline when the fixes for those problems will be released to customers.
As a consumer, you definitely don’t need Java on your system. If any website asks for Java, then they don’t want to take the time to find a serious alternative.
