Privacy: Java, ActiveX, ssh

Java, ActiveX & Your Privacy
Tf you are truly concerned
about your online privacy, you will limit your exposure to Java and
ActiveX programs by turning off Java and ActiveX or forcing your
browser to ask permission before executing any Java or ActiveX program

NOTE: Firefox does not accept ActiveX controls, so you don't need to worry about ActiveX, only Java, when running Firefox.
To disable Java in Mozilla Firefox
  1. Open Firefox
  2. From the Tools menu, choose Options...
  3. Click on the Web Features icon in the left sidebar.
  4. Uncheck the Java checkbox.
  5. Click OK in the Options window.

Logging in with One-Time Passwords via SSH
