Beware Java

Microsoft may have its own security foibles, but I pointed out recently that it didn't release 81 patches in one cycle like Oracle just did.

Maybe that's what gave Microsoft the confidence to lash out at Java (now part of the Oracle arsenal), claiming there were some six million attacks on Java in the most recent quarter. PDFs, though still a product, were only attacked "thousands" of times over those three months.

In fact, Microsoft spends a lot of time issuing patches for Java problems because so much Java runs on Windows.
