    Details from closer to source: http://blog.trendmicro.com/trendlabs...o-day-exploit/

    If you must use Java, disable it in your browsers, if you must use it in a browser (for banking or other reasons), do not use that same browser for general surfing/internet use: http://blog.trendmicro.com/trendlabs...a-if-you-must/
