please take note that the company which is pointing out the issues also 
has a remedy on offer. also, the companies name is mentioned eight times 
throughout the article.

i don't consider the java platform being high-risk. rather the opposite.

because java is used a lot in enterprise applications, keeping track of 
security vulnerabilities in java components and selling that information 
to enterprises makes an interesting business opportunity. from my point 
of view, that makes vulnerabilities more transparent an manageable.
