    There's an unpatched Java exploit out there that seems to have been spotted carrying out some attacks.

    The current recommendation is to disable Java in browsers (or run NoScript-ish add-ons) to reduce your chances of a bad run in until a patch is released. Though things don't look too serious now and there's no need to panic since it's a pretty easy thing to deal with, I'm just passing this information along.

    At this time, I'm not sure if other implementations are affected.
