Why would you want to leave your computer open to the now known java plugin vulnerability?.

I meant only temporary using NoScript. This is so I can use the nice Java uploader on ADrive

I see, but would that not spread the exploit if you are infected?, maybe a bit irresponsible do you not think?.

How do I know if I have java and if it works or not?
Are there any known homepage that tells which version one have and if it works?

Subject description: about:plugins
 

for firefox use:

about:plugins
this will list all plugins and version and status

You can see the full path of all plugins if you edit config as:
about:config
type plugin
double click plugin.expose_full_path to set it to true.

Thanks

java.java_plugin_library_name; javaplugin_oji
and the noscript says
extensions
Extra protection for your Firefox:
NoScript allows JavaScript, Java (and other plugins) only for trusted domains of your choice (e.g. your home-banking web site).

This whitelist based pre-emptive blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even unknown!) with no loss of functionality… Experts will agree: Firefox is really safer with NoScript Smile

So it says but I have almost no grasp of what it means.

So Oji made the pet maybe? javaplugin_oji

I think if you use abushcrafters link above, then for noscript click on the no script icon to allow the site www.java.com. you should see a sample java app running.

Maybe I try it tomorrow.

Or maybe I don't dare to because of that exploit going on?

The java.com site says my version does not work.
