Email Phishing Attacks Use Java Exploit

Sorry to keep harping on Java here lately, but the pot is bubbling pretty hard right now. There are a couple of phishing emails doing the rounds, one supposedly from Microsoft (a "Microsoft Services Agreement") and Amazon ("Your Order With Amazon.com"). Both of these contain links that will attempt to use the current Java exploit to infect your computer and/or try to get personal data. The consensus thinking at the moment seems to be that computer users should just disable Java until this is fixed.
