In the recent past, a number of serious vulnerabilities have been found in multiple versions of Java. Many of these vulnerabilities allowed hackers to gain access to machines and steal away important data. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has now advised users to disable Java on their computers.

Oracle, the company that currently carries out Java code development and owns the software, has been releasing patches to take care of the vulnerabilities that are being regularly discovered by security researchers. Java vulnerabilities are particularly dangerous because billions of machines around the globe make active use of Java.

Developers often write down web apps in Java and these web apps are used by users of multiple operating systems. In other words, Java is virtually among the most used pieces of software in the whole world.

Given the plethora of security issues in Java that have been recently unearthed, security experts have been citing the insecurity of the software and raising concerns about it. Following their concerns, the U.S. government has been looking into the whole thing.

And now, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has issued a recommendation which asks computer users to disable Java on their machines. This, the department cites, is in the interests of the users and to ensure that a hacker doesn’t use a Java vulnerability to gain access to a target machine and perpetuate cyber crime. Oracle hasn’t yet issued a statement in response, although we expect it to be quite caustic once it arrives.
