Wow!! another Java zero day. Virtualized browser anyone?

I’m disabling Java completely just to be on the safe side until they release a patch. We just can’t make this right huh, Oracle. Do we need Neo’s help? I wish I took the blue pill.

This would be a perfect use case for a Virtualize IE or Chrome with Java extension. Use the non Java browser for day to day browsing and just use the virtualized/sandboxed browser with Java if there is an application that needs it. Thinapp, Cameyo, Xenapp, AppV and other application virtualization software can help with this.
