    You’re welcome but unfortunately it’s not all over yet. Ghack warns that Java is still vulnerable after the patch:

    The fact is that most computer users do not need Java, especially not in the web browser. The best action at present remains to disable Java in your browser, at least till all currently known vulnerabilities are fixed. Of course, even when this happens, there will be more found in the future.
