    I am getting pissed at Oracle because they keep trying to sneak in add-ons, like tool bars, in with the Java updates.

    Very good question, but no one actually knows.

    Visual BASIC is another example that very few of our users use, yet it is often exploited by malware.

    These can not be used to write useful portable software, but are used to write malware. I don't know anyone who uses Java!

    Java is for stand alone applications. There are some vulnerabilities that are difficult to exploit. Java is often deployed via the web, but allowing that is not a good idea given these vulnerabilities. I have Java and alike off in all browsers on all systems.

    JavaScript is the extension language for web browsers similar to Visual BASIC macros in Microsoft Office. Many web sites still depend on JavaScript and some browsers depend on allowing remote JavaScript for CSS. It is also used internally and locally by many browsers.

    As JavaScript is used extensively in browsers I have seen it being used in TLS downgrade MITM attacks. In this case Java did live up to its portability promise. I watched an attack go down in Linux on my POWER machine!

    Web site warning

    Many web sites give you a warning if you have Java or JavaScript turned off. I do the opposite and give a warning if either has been installed. This is my own work and is hereby released in to the public domain, please share and enjoy.

    http://bgc.com.au/share/java.js
    Code:
    if(navigator.javaEnabled()) {
    window.alert("WARNING: Java enabled!\nPlease disable it via\n\
    Tools/Add-ons/Plugins\nand then restart."); } else {
    window.alert("INFO: JavaScript enabled! \
    It may be disabled via Edit/Preferences or limited by NoScript in \
    Tools/Add-ons/Extensions, but some sites depend on JavaScript. \
    JavaScript and Plugins must not be enabled for Mail & Newsgroups."); }
