Hi all,
I am not sure if this is the correct list for this message.
I recently read this article about a Java 1.7 Security Problem.

The article states "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has recommended that users disable the Java 7 browser plug-in entirely".

There have been multiple security vulnerabilities in the browser plug-in over the years and it is best not to enable java in your browser.

Does this problem concern LibreOffice and Java???

No. It only affects the browser plug-in.

This macrumors article post and reads that this problem effects java
versions 4-7. At the moment oracle are at java 7.

The full title of the article is "Apple Blocks Java 7 Plug-in on OS X to Address Widespread Security Threat"
