For everyone that thinks this is only Microsoft PR bashing a competitor do the following:

Install java browser plugin for versions 1.4 1.5 6 and 7 (you need all of them because java is not strictly backwards compatible, and many businesses are still at 1.4 or older)

Then go surf some suspicious websites for a couple of hours... I dare you.
