Avira Security Software Detects Java 7 Exploits

Security expert Avira announced today that all of its antivirus and security software products have been updated to detect the latest Java 7 zero-day exploits.

Millions of computer users are at risk from the Java zero-day vulnerability, which allows hackers to inject malicious code into even fully-patched Windows or Linux computer operating systems.

Fortunately, Avira customers can relax a bit as all Avira software products now protect against generic exploits of the Java 7 vulnerability. Although detecting the exploits does not fix the Java 7 flaw, it keeps Avira customers safe from having their computers used in potentially malicious actions and from losing their private data.

“Whenever a vulnerability like this is discovered – especially when it is in a widely distributed software like Java – the bad guys are quick to write exploits that take advantage of the flaw,” said Sorin Mustaca, IT security expert at Avira. “While Oracle ultimately needs to patch Java, in the meantime we can at least prevent our customers from falling victim to the exploits.”

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
