Java 7 Update 10 and earlier contain an unspecified vulnerability that can allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.
Internet Explorer users should just uninstall Java for now.

Microsoft unveils Internet Explorer 10 Release Preview for Windows 7

Microsoft has announced the availability of Internet Explorer 10 as a Release Preview edition – in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavours – for Windows 7. (And yes, only Windows 7 users with SP1 installed need apply. Windows Vista and XP are left out of this one.)

Changes are mostly under the hood, but the upgrade does deliver some major performance improvements which you may like to try.

In our first tests, the new Release Preview installed much like any other Windows update. It downloads a few files, and whirs for a while before demanding a reboot. Which takes a little longer than usual as various core files are replaced.
Is anyone using this yet? If so. What do you think of it?
