i disagree. the reason homeland has issued the warning is there is no known counter or cure for it yet. or prevention other then to deactivate until java comes up with an update.

I read the notice. The Java issue is mainly with untrusted sites. It's theoretically possible to have it happen if a trusted site gets hacked, but that requires the trusted site to get hacked.

Here's the original notice: http://www.us-cert.gov/cas/techalerts/TA13-010A.html

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
