    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is advising people to temporarily disable the Java software on their computers to avoid potential hacking attacks.

    The recommendation came in an advisory issued late Thursday, following up on concerns raised by computer security experts.

    Experts believe hackers have found a flaw in Java's coding that creates an opening for criminal activity and other high-tech mischief.
