A day after the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned computer users to disable or uninstall Java after a serious security vulnerability was discovered by researchers, Oracle has said that a fix will be made available "shortly."
Oracle, which develops the Java plug-in software after the technology giant acquired Sun Microsystems in 2009, did not give a timeframe in which a fix would be released, though it is expected this coming week.
More than 850 million PCs around the world use Java, according to Oracle, and could be at risk if they do not disable or uninstall the plug-in immediately.
While the flaw was found in Java 7, Oracle told sister site CNET in a statement that the flaw does not exist in older versions of the software.
Firefox maker Mozilla has also explained that Firefox users may be vulnerable if they are running Java 7.
