FWIW, the updates have been released (for anyone who wants them).
Java SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 33: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre6-downloads-1637595.html
Java SE Runtime Environment 7u5: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1637588.html
Any auto-update funtionality of Sun Java may be disabled via this MSCONFIG item and via the Java Control Panel. One would disable in both areas.
Opinion, since Oracle | Java update only occasionally, the is no real need to have this set to automatic.
