Java, off and on, has always been more or less of a vulnerability. If you're concerned, you can disable the Java browser plugins and wait for a patch, or uninstall Java 7 and go back to Java 6u31, which can be found here:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre-6u31-download-1501637.html

the direct download links to use in the list given are:


Windows x86 (32-bit) Offline 16.19 MB jre-6u31-windows-i586.exe

and

Windows x64 (64-bit) 16.45 MB jre-6u31-windows-x64.exe

Repa,

I went ahead and disabled since this is being put out as a problem. It is easy enough to re-enable if I try to do something that requires it.

Thanks,
Fay
