    The only thing that I've seen with regard to scope of the threat is that it is being seen in the wild, and bad guys are selling exploits to each other to take advantage of this.  You'd think that there would be a lot more out there about this - but it may just be that short of disabling Java, there's nothing that can be done about it.

      Oracle's corporate ethos has always been aggressiveness combined with sloppy releases and bug fixes.  This could have been avoided if they took the time to devise a thorough patch three months ago instead of a half-assed patch that didn't address all the vulnerabilities reported by Security Explorations.
