The Java browser plug-in may be exploitable, but not so much "Java" itself.   I understand, of course, that the label "Java" gets applied to a bunch of qualitatively different things.   But using the label to cloud and misrepresent matters to users is irresponsible and unethical.

No one likes applets, not even Java people.   But almost no one deploys them anyway.   The Java platform itself (the back-end: language, JVM, appserver--which, btw, routinely runs on much more secure OSes than the IIS-standard Windows) is less exploitable than the Microsoft equivalent combination (.NET runtime, IIS+Windows OS), and it's this (either intentional or ignorant) implicit false comparison of applets (a marginal use of Java) with _anything_else_ that's incorrect.

Best,
Forty
