There's a writeup on it (in english) here:

The recomendation is to either disable Java, downgrade to the previous version or use a scriptblocking plugin like noscript.

Personally, my approach has been a combination of the noscript and adblock plus plugins - it's nigh on impossible to actually *use* the web without Java and Flash these days, but ymmv.

I use Flash Block tool and only enable flashes I want to see and white list a few. Use another browser for times I rarely want no flash blocking or disable it temporarily. Too many sites use multiple flash components when not necessary to function or just for ad overload.

I find in general noscript seems to block flash too. One thing I've been looking for though is a tool that will let me white/black list specific scripts from domains. NoScript seems to just do it per domain which is a pity.

Patched, but i'd hesitate to call it problem solved ;)
