http://crunchbanglinux.org – Yeah, I intuit that Mac and Win are much more at risk. for the java 0day poison ivy hole, but I am not going to surf for 2 months with a gaping hole.  aptitude search java output filtered here is A sun-java6-bin                         - Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 (archiwell that is not JRE7.  JRESix is supposed to be safe.    So, I plan to purge java and go to the opensource alternatives when I do a clean install when Wheezy enters stable.  Any other thoughts on this one?  Reading thin (HowTos)
