Exclamation Java: Us-cert alert

Ran across the following JAVA US-CERT Alert on another forum this morning, pertains to JAVA Version 7. I run JAVA Version 6, not sure if it applies.

US-CERT Alert: http://www.us-cert.gov/cas/techalerts/TA13-010A.html

More Info: http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/625617

Disabling JAVA 7: http://www.java.com/en/download/help...le_browser.xml

NOTE: I'm not versed on this subject matter, please do your own do-diligence before changing any of your PC settings. It's my understanding that "Javascript" (not effected) and "JAVA" are two different programs.

Most of the follow-up information that I have seen implies that the US-CERT Alert applies only to Oracle JAVA Version 7. Oracle is suppose to be working on a fix, but no release date has been stated. JAVA Version 6 was manufactured by Sun Microsystems prior to Oracle acquiring Sun Microsystems.

So for the moment I'm leaving my JAVA Version 6 enabled.

UPDATE:

Oracle has a patch update incorporated in the latest version of Java, that being Java SE 7u11 (update #11).

There is a feature in this update that provides the ability to easily enable/disable Java content in one's web browser.
