dhsThe Department of Homeland Security has announced that Java software has become vulnerable to cyberattacks, Yahoo Finance reports.

Experts think hackers have uncovered a flaw in Java’s coding that creates an opportunity for high-tech mischief.

The DHS advised Java users to disable the software to avoid hacking.

Java is used for application development and can be utilized on almost all computer operating systems.

Oracle bought Java as part of a $7.3 billion acquisition of the software’s creator, Sun Microsystems, in 2010.

On Sunday, the company released an emergency update to its Java software for surfing the web, meant to fix the coding issue.
