Disable your java

There is also a test page so you can tell if your java version is exploitable
(I'm glad I don't have java installed and haven't for quite a few years)

Unless you specifically need Java, (gaming maybe?), it's not really worth having on your machine.

Actions to take :-
Games and some sites (like online banks) use Java.
Switch to a bank that allows use of Non-IE browsers and excludes Java from its requirements
Check whether the bank's casual attitude has leaked information that has/may result in identity fraud against you. This may help

I know Google Chrome doesn't run Java content without manual approval. Do other browsers do this too?
The last time I actually used Java for anything was to use Trend Micro Housecall, their free online virus scan which would prompt in both those old versions of IE and Firefox. I do remember visiting a site years ago which back then has some nifty Java stuff on it that automatically ran in both IE and Firefox with not prompting.

I never trusted Java, seeing it is a multi-platform attack surface. We need fewer attack areas, not more!
Thanks for the update! Bye bye, java! Pity that Open Office uses it...

Yup, Nearly as many updates as Firefox
But less secure,
