I thought you might be interested in what I stumbled into this past month. The chart to the left shows the applications hackers target most. I was wowed that Java is number one. Somehow, I don't think being number one in this contest was the goal.
So what is Java and do you need it?
Java comes in two parts. First, it is a programming language used to create applications to run on your computer. Second, it is a plugin installed into the browser allowing you to run the programs created in the first step. The plugin is the problem. You can disable the plugin. It's easy. Find the Control Panel. In Windows 7: Click on the Start Button then click on Control Panel in the Right hand pane. In Windows 8: Swipe in from the Right and type "Control" in the search box. Once you have located the Control Panel, look in the upper right corner. If it says Category View, click and change it to Large Icons. From there click on Java. Once the Java page comes up, click on the Security Tab and remove the check mark from the box labeled "Enable Java content in browser". That's it, you are all done. EASY!

My husband blessed me with a new piece of exercise equipment and a challenge: William Tell Overture. For the uninitiated: this is an antique pump organ and William Tell Overture is the theme song to Lone Ranger. I’m uncertain if Neal is encouraging a leaner, trimmer, sexier me, or trying to collect on my life insurance!
