XSS: Gaining Access to HttpOnly Cookie

Using the method getHeaderField in the Java HTTP API, any applet can access cookies with the HttpOnly flag set. This proves that enabling the HttpOnly flag does not protect you from XSS. Test your application with NTOSpider to find all possible Cross-Site Scripting in your web application.

Attackers releases Zero-Day Java Exploit

A major zero day exploit in Java was released last week. Oracle recently moved Java to a quarterly patch cycle with its next update scheduled for October. Oracle released an out of band update which should be applied immediately across all operating system platforms.  It is rumored that the exploit has found its way into the BlackHole exploit kit and it is available in Metasploit.  You’ll want to ensure that you are running Java version 7 update 7 OR Java version 6 update 35.  http://www.java.com/

If you’re thinking to unplug Java from your browser or uninstall it from your computer completely, then it is a bit harder than point and click.
