Well, Oracle has finally released an update that fixes a BIG vulnerability in Java. So I've enabled Java and installed its update, and all is back to normal again! :cartmansmile:

I think I need an OS upgrade to my work computer in order to get the current flash player. It only gives me the option to install 10.3, which I've got running already. It would be so much more convenient if that thing was current with flash for some of my work shit.

The work computer is still running Mac OS 10.5.8 and I think they're up to like 10.8 now. Probably have to talk to someone at the home office about that one of these days.

Of course, Flash Player version 10.3 has a lot of updates, which you can find in this link here (this has archives of Flash Player versions both new and old). :)

Computer security expert Brian Krebs was almost arrested for fraud and cybercrimes while his website was being attacked thanks to a hoax that manipulated the FBI! Thank goodness he's safe! :o :shock:

I know it's been addressed two days ago, but Firefox version 20 was released and patches 11 serious flaws. Sweet! Now, if only I could get Norton Toolbar to work with this version. :cartmansmile:
