javascript safe ?

Some homeland security news item said I should disable Java cause bad people are taking control of my computer due to some java thing…and so I uninstalled java from my computer and also disabled javascript in my browser(s). But then I tried to reply to a post here and it didn’t work cause I had to enable javascript in order to post a reply…

 

Is javascript safe ?  Am I going to get some bad guys taking control of my computer and stealing my bank accounts and identity and stuff like that if I have javascript enabled ? Is it safe to have the requirement of adobe activation etc through the internet ONLY and constant checking of my credentials etc to use Adobe product on my computer …( confirmation that I’m licensed etc ) using these scripts and stuff I have no clue what is going on ???
