    Default US government tells computer users to disable Java

    And just how long is temporary? Have any of you done this?
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is advising people to temporarily disable the Java software on their computers to avoid potential hacking attacks.

    The recommendation came in an advisory issued late Thursday, following up on concerns raised by computer security experts.

    Your welcome. I had not heard anything until I read this. Now if I disable my Java, what exactly will that do to my computer?

    Nothing, some web sites that use java (not many) are probably sites you'll never visit also there's not a whole lot of apps that do either.
