Immediately after I started my laptop today, I got a popup announcing me that I have to install a Java update.
Well, knowing that it has vulnerabilities, I said… OK, do it.
And then I continued to work …
After a couple of seconds, I see the following popup :
So, now the legitimate question: Why am I offered to get that damn toolbar ( I HATE toolbars !!!!) only because I wanted to update Java.
What has Java (or Sun ) to do with Yahoo ?
I think that nothing else than … money. I guess Yahoo pays a lot of money to Java to bundle their sh** toolbar.
And what makes me really mad is the fact that it is by default installed. A user who does nothing else than click Next -> Next… will automatically install it.
I consider this practice as bad as Adware and Spyware.
Bad boys… Yahoo and even worse Sun !!!
Shame on you !!!
