Default Critical Java hole being exploited on a large scale

From http://h-online.com/-1485681

Quote:
Criminals are increasingly exploiting a critical hole in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to infect computers with malicious code when users visit a specially crafted web page. According to well-known security blogger Brian Krebs, the reason for this increased activity is that the arsenal of the BlackHole exploit kit has been extended to include a suitable exploit.
