Open Issues on Security

In the case of Java, the security is only as good as its runtime implementation. Holes have been found and fixed in various implementations, but these same issues might arise again in future implementations as Java is ported to other platforms. After all, each version of the JVM needs to be written in a platform-specific programming language, such as C, and can have its own flaws and weaknesses.

Aside from that, many types of malicious behavior are difficult (if not impossible) to avoid. No matter what is done to the Java security model, for instance, it will not stop someone from putting rude or obscene material in an applet or starting long, resource-intensive processes. Such actions are not defects but will continue to be nuisances.
