    ORACLE is such a huge corporation, I wonder why they don't make java more secure. It's more than time for us to abandom Flash and Java, and to create new standards.

    I agree (HTML5...) but in my case (and also described in article) js files are used which has nothing to do with Java neither with Flash.

    Gads, it's amazing how many people get sucked in by this stuff. Invoice in a zip file in an email attachment. Arg. And of course no backups, double arg. BACKUP your data and systems. Then do it again.

    I can see how this stuff can happen in small companies. Many there are not very sophisticated in malware and computer security for that matter.

    Now with large corps. that is a different matter. They are running e-mail servers and should have security to filter out crap/malicious e-mails.
