As you can read here (http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2012/08/29/java_zero_day_vulnerability_why_you_should_disable_java_on_your_browser_right_now_.html) a somewhat serious security vulnerabilty issue was discovered regarding Java 7 running on browsers. It seems that it is fixed as you can read here (http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2012/08/30/oracle_java_update_latest_fix_available_for_download_but_do_you_really_need_it_.html).

Hope that helped in case someone is not aware of that issue.
