    From some of the references in the article about the various exploits:

    This is instructive reading, especially for those who help home users. Notwithstanding that these vulnerabilities have been patched, and that no in-the-wild exploits targeting them were released, nonetheless, it calls attention to the importance of understanding what Java is (it is not Javascript), when it is necessary to run (current browsers allow for toggling Enable/Disable), and, as is the case with many web-embedded exploits, how to be aware of the ways attackers trick users into opening files from the web.
