Despite Oracle's emergency fix to patch a serious vulnerability in its widely used Java software, several security experts on Monday advised computer users to minimize using the product, because of fears more flaws will be discovered.
"This is definitely a temporary fix," said Sorin Mustaca, a data security expert with Avira, a German-based company that sells anti-virus software. "If you do a fix under a lot of pressure and very, very fast, then only one thing will happen: more vulnerabilities. So, for me, this is just the rain before the storm. I think it will get worse, it will get much worse."
Still, Mustaca recommended installing Oracle's security patch, which is available here: http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp
