Latest Java installation has serious zero-day vulnerabilities

FYI:

The current TWO releases of Java 7 - update 9 and 10 have serious issues which are now being exploited - so much so, that security professionals are suggesting disabling Java in your browser

Quick "how-to" on manually checking that you have the latest Java (which is still vulnerable):
