Protecting against Java zero-day vulnerability, and methods for patching or protecting non-Microsoft products
Posted on 2013-01-23
the company I am with has received an email from TrendMicro talking up Java zero-day vulnerability saying disable Java until a patch comes out. Unless (hook) you install blah blah to protect yourself. We do run antivirus but it is a Trend product and they don't think it is good enough to protect against this threat.
My company has asked me to investigate.
I would want to have a pretty good business case to warrant spending the money Trend are asking for the next level up.
I guess part of this question is what my attitude to patching other products like Java should be.
I am just implementing WSUS for Microsoft products but that doesn't patch anything other than Microsoft.
Any thoughts on patching Non-Microsoft products in general, and in particular what to do about the Java zero-day vulnerability in general?
Thanks in advance,
