Java Patch up warmly this winter if you're running Java. That's the advice from .NET shop Microsoft, which reckons Oracle's platform is the single biggest target for hackers. Java proved the single most popular target in the 12-month period to the end of June, according to Microsoft's latest Security Intelligence Report has found here Running Java as a Web-browser Plugin is much more dangerous than Flash, and should disable the Java Applet Plugin.

Actually I read only article not PDF, but when browse PDF I was shocked. Page 63 from 168 show a graphic where you could learn that detected Operating Systems exploits was doubled at the end of 2Q2011 and at second place after Java exploits. May be for 3Q2011 we should expect OS exploits to be more than Java.

May be masses should be warned about that in this cheap article.
