A new type of cyberattack capable of exploiting vulnerabilities in Java applications run through SIM cards installed on smartphones has been identified by a mobile security company, according to ZDNet.
Technology giant Google and its parent company, Alphabet, Inc. could soon be poised to pay billions of dollars in damages related to its use of Java programming code and a resulting copyright dispute with Oracle Corporation.
Java’s structural flaws have been openly laid bare on multiple occasions. Ineffective patching is typically the root cause of large-scale Java breaches such as these but what if mending porous code is not enough?
It’s important to always stay on top of new vulnerabilities affecting Java and other open-source programming languages.
Many of our most trusted systems are vulnerable to cyberthreats, and there’s no reason to think the average business is immune.
Considerable vulnerabilities still exist in the arena of open source software.
