Despite the fact that this exploit only involves Java plug-ins, it does seem to me that the entire product is tainted beyond redemption.

If so, I'd have thought the biggest impact as far as Tech Comm is concerned is going to be on publishers of all those Intro Java books. Over the last 15 years or so, huge numbers of uni's teach Java as their intro programming lang' instead of C/C++.

BTW, if you haven't caught the news Ars Technica have a nice piece on it here:
