Longer term I'm curious how long Java will remain the exploit target king. It's not something that 99% of users need installed in their browser; as people gradually remove it or have it removed for them (when they talk us into fixing their computer) its attractiveness as a target for attack should go down.

Good point. This is one of the 'fixes' I tend to do when I get stuck with a relative's computer. Most of them have Java installed either because of something they ran years ago, or because it was installed with something else (Oh, I hate installers that do that).
 
I still seem to get dinged when I uninstall Flash, but maybe it's just my Kongregate addition.
