    Looks like the latest version of 6 and 7 are exploitable

    The chances of being the one chosen to be hacked out of 3 billion would seem to be pretty small, like fish swimming in shoals of billions for protection when attacked by circling sharks

    Except the attack is likely automated when you innocently surf past a corrupted website, or a hijacked link sends you there.

    Then again, java has been a security PITA for ages anyway, so is this really anything further to fear?

    I have indeed disabled it, this is a major threat at present, with the typical arrogant tardiness Oracle displays when issuing patches (next release in October I believe).
    Shame they bought Sun, wrecked a lot of good stuff.

    The next scheduled patch release is in October, Oracle seldom issue out of schedule patches, hopefully this will be an exception!
