Apple Removes Java on OS X 10.7 & 10.8 Because of Malware

Posted on 19 October 2012 by author

News have been released that the new update for Mac users which are the OS X Lion and the OS X Mountain Lion. On the other hand, you might want to read on first before you hit that update button. Apparently, the new OS X 10.7 and 10.8 will automatically remove the Java plug in found in all of your OS X browsers.

Apple said that Larry Ellison’s beloved Java is vulnerable for exploitation (think keyloggers and hackers) therefore they would like to distance the company’s products from that weakness. Ever since the Cupertino-based Apple put atop to the pre-installation of the Java to its new operating system, the OS X, we immediately thought there was something going on and this is our answer.

If you are still interested in downloading the new updates, just read on. Once you download the update, you will still get all the new features but you will also get a “missing” plug-in region on your browser instead of the Java app. On the other hand, if you still want to run any Java apps, you can just manually download and install the Java runtime application from the Oracle. Apparently, the OS will not prevent you from doing such.
