There is no way in hell anyone here is going to fix the security holes
in Java (open or closed).

The only way to avoid the security holes caused by java is to not use it.

That's like telling someone not to use Firefox because it has security holes.

It might be worth to fix in openjdk but again, openjdk is useless to
me as it is.
