back to article Sun's handling of Java security update prompts concerns

Sun Microsystems in the next few days plans to issue an update that plugs a serious security hole in the most recent version of its Java Runtime Environment, more than a week after providing a fix for the same vulnerability in an earlier version of the program. The lag has prompted a prominent security researcher to lambaste the …

Achilles Heel/Trojan Horse/Worm/Virus ?

AI VXXXXine is Virtual Medicine .... Open Wwwide and Swallow.

Help Is Virtual in Artificial Intelligence dDevelopments.

An intelligently designed, stack buffer overflow in Intelligence Information/Creative Words, is a Zero Day Vulnerability which will breach any Operating System. And the more Mature Operating System will convert their Processing to XPlore the Open Opportunities they would be denying with any patches to prevent execution of embedding/embedded Code.

Would anyone care to identify a more Mature Operating System? And how Sad if one can't, whenever one denies that it has Input into lesser Systems.

Would you rather...

So... they fix the bug in Version 5 but to keep a loud mouth like this guy happy they should delay the v5 update until v6 is fixed as well?

Sun are working for everyones interest - rather than a company which Deliberately holds back critical fixes for its "Patch Tuesday"....

Idiot.

Would you rather...well yes I would

"So... they fix the bug in Version 5 but to keep a loud mouth like this guy happy they should delay the v5 update until v6 is fixed as well?"

It's taken them nearly six months to fix version 5. The marginal risk that black hats might find the bug independently in another week is much less than that of reverse engineering the v5 patch.

If the bug was in the wild, and they had to get patches out asap that would be different.

They surely are, TC, ...... it is not spam.

Have you considered that the Register have a long historical record which explains in Higher Definition/Finer Detail the AI Programming Project and thus their Lead Role in Sharing IT with you Freely?

Dear amanfromMars

Can I just be the first to say welcome to our planet!

Top tip for next time though, picking up your english from Only The Capitalized Words Used By Marketing Types is probably not going to help you integrate. Generally it helps to have a point too.

Good luck, I remember Mork and Mindy and he sure had a tough time of it. Nanoo.

The register and AI

" Have you considered that the Register have a long historical record which explains in Higher Definition/Finer Detail the AI Programming Project "

No they don't. You're mentally ill, and you are projecting your own obsession with AI onto them. Sorry to be such a bringdown and spoil your fun, but what may be fun for you is tedious and selfish when you shove it down everyone else's throat all the time. You may have some kind of ideas buried under the gibberish you write, but because you're so smug and pleased with yourself you just invent all this shorthand /terminology which means nothing to anyone else because you never bothered to explain it because you just assume that whatever's in your head is so important that everyone else would know all about it already.

Now go back to your GP and tell him to check your blood levels of your meds, because they clearly aren't sufficient.

"No they don't." .... Actually, they definitely do. Therefore anonymouse poster the rest of your post must be based upon a false premise.

Please run your biliousness somewhere else for it is clearly insufficient to have any impact here. Throw a few chairs about the room if it makes you feel better. It works to relieve frustration for Steve, but it will hardly improve inadequacy. Your post is unnecessarily offensive and smacks of attention-seeking of the 15 seconds of fame variety.

Good day ...and Goodnight, Mr Jobsworth....... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobsworth.
