After the Department of Homeland Security’s US-CERT warned users to disable Java to stop hackers from taking control of users’ machines, Oracle issued an emergency patch on Sunday.
Last week, US-CERT warned that the newest Java “vulnerability is being attacked in the wild, and is reported to be incorporated into exploit kits. Exploit code for this vulnerability is also publicly available. We have confirmed that Windows, OS X, and Linux platforms are affected.”

JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the public availability of IntelliJ IDEA 12, a regular yearly update of their award-winning Java IDE for web, enterprise and mobile development.
The latest release features a brand new, much faster compiler for enhanced user experience. “We have rebuilt the compiler from the ground up and moved it to a separate process,” said Maxim Mossienko, IntelliJ IDEA project lead. “Now your project can be compiled automatically in the background on every change you make, so you can run it almost instantly any time.”
As usual, IntelliJ IDEA stays on top of cutting-edge technologies to provide developers with timely support. It embraces the latest versions of Java, including its previews and new features that every developer is eager to try. With IntelliJ IDEA 12, JDK 8 can already be enjoyed with code assistance for new syntax such as lambda expressions, method references, and default methods.
