Big Java security fixes on the way – but not so fast, Windows XP users


Recommended Posts

(I abandoned Java years ago, so this issue doesn't impact me.   But for those XP users who still have java...)

 

Are you saying that MBAE will adequately protect Java even for XP users?   Or are you instead suggesting that it's time for XP users to completely dump java??
