I see that there is the usual 'difference of opinion' between 'experts' as to whether this particular bug represents computer Armageddon or is merely a minor glitch that won't scare the horses; http://www.networkworld.com/news/2010/041010-nifty-java-bug-could-lead.html
At first, I read the comment about the flaw being restricted to Windows networks due to the address format mentioned in the article. However, the harmless test I ran used the same address format and the jar file was fetched and downloaded from over the Internet. Therefore, I think that particular person was wrong to think the address format implied a more narrow scope of exposure of this flaw.anyone have any comments on the reader replies on the threatpost story? minor flaw?
