There have been bugs and security problems in Java since Java's inception.
The next exploit is there just waiting to happen.
Live with it. If you don't need Java, disable or delete it. If you need it, have a virus protection program. I have Norton's Internet Security Suite and I was notified by Norton's that I (we) were protect against the Java threat.
Just remember that when it comes to virus protection you get what you pay for, and paying for it is not really expensive when you consider the peace of mind.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
