  4. JDK 1.7.0_13 has been out for a few days, and you are still talking about 1.7.0_11 as if it were hot off the press news. You are trashing Java unfairly. Java has had 3 security breaches in 15 years, and then only in the rarely used Applet feature. Other languages have no security sandbox whatsoever. Java had a leak it its.

There you will find information on the apps Permissions, App Behavior and User Ratings including detailed information on how the app has to access your personal data, the apps behavior after connecting and what users think about the app. An example of when an app reportedly has too much control can be seen on the FarmVille app reputation page.

  8. With the introduction of Windows 7, many PC and notebook users may feel more secure than they did using older versions of the Microsoft operating system. Newer OSs have more security features, offer better out-of-the-box security settings and have closed many of the historical security holes. Windows 7, for example, has changed the default User Account Control level so that it's harder for rogue programs to run without first explicitly gaining the user's permission. http://www.pcworld.com/article/254369/10_commandments_of_windows_security.html Thanks to, PCW
