Heres something for people who like to play Minecraft or run other various Java apps but still wish to be secure on OS X, this update removes the applet from all browsers, to get it back you have to download the applet plugin from Oracle before java can be run in the browser again.

Java for OS X 2012-006 1.0

Java for OS X 2012-006 delivers improved security, reliability, and compatibility by updating Java SE 6 to 1.6.0_37.

This update uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all web browsers. To use applets on a web page, click on the region labeled "Missing plug-in" to go download the latest version of the Java applet plug-in from Oracle.

Please quit any web browsers and Java applications before installing this update.

You do realize that as long as you are running the latest version of either Lion or Mountain Lion, you can now get Java 7 Update 9 from http://www.java.com/ Just in case you didn't know.

This also won't affect standalone java apps (like Minecraft) as it just removed the plugin from browsers. Minecraft calls the java binary in the system which is a different beast.

If you really need that insecure Java cr*p, don't bother with Apple's version and download original from Oracle
