re: Java Zero-Day Malware Attack: 6 Facts
You are welcome, but then why do you still include links to this story in the many specialized and best of emails that come out days later? I received another link to this story today and by now I wondered if there is another flaw in the current version. Well, there is, but this article addresses the old, already fixed flaws. Your competition is much more on the ball.

re: Java Zero-Day Malware Attack: 6 Facts
I would like to see a "7th fact" about why Java 7 was vulnerable and Java 6 was/is not. Our current corporate standard -- yes, we have some corporate Web apps, both internal and contracted, which require Java -- is v6.x.

Thanks for the comment, moarsauce. Welcome to the fast-paced world of publishing, eh? Yes, after this story came out, Oracle issued its alert about the patch--which is a welcome fix. Our sister publication DarkReading has more on the Java 7 patch.

There is already a update out that addresses the vulnerability. Maybe it is worthwhile to be more up to speed with content and publishing.

Please forgive me for writing when you weren't reading. I have brought this up several times in the past.
GET THIS TO YOUR EDITOR:
You have made some client-unfriendly changes to your format.
When we hit the 'Print' Icon, we expect to see the entire article as one page and relatively 'free' of (insert your own euphemism).
On this article, it was necessary to go to page 2 to get the whole article.
The result was also littered with (insert your own euphemism).
What should have printed on 2 sheets took at least 5.
What callous disregard for the environment and your clients resources!
