It's recommended that you uninstall Java from your computer and disable it on your browsers until this issue has been fixed.

Isn't this news a tad old? What I'm getting at is, has this problem been resolved already?

Ahh well if that's the case then good. I still removed it from my computer and browser anyway since I don't really use it, and there was apparently another big problem with it back in August. So better safe than sorry about this and any possible future security issues related to java.

I only use Java for one game site I play on, other than that I never have use for it.
