Java Warning from Homeland Security

Homeland security has issued a warning to disable or remove Java software from your computer, due to a glitch in the software that could cause you to visit a site and upload a malicious Java applet, causing more problems.  Read details at this government site (U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team) and in this thorough article by MSNBC, which both contain instructions on how to disable the software.  Be advised that many computers come pre-installed with Java, so even if you did not install the program, you may likely have it on your computer.
