Just to add a note here for those running the 64bit IE you have to manually download the latest 64bit version of Java on the page seen at Java Downloads for All Operating Systems - Sun Microsystems

That will be the second link under Windows seen there.

Windows 64-bit operating system comes with both 32-bit and 64-bit Internet Explorer (IE) browsers. 32-bit IE comes as a default. There are different versions of Java software available for download depending on whether you are using 32-bit or 64-bit IE browsers.

Please note that the 64-bit Java is presented as a download option automatically for 64-bit Internet Explorer users, as it is the only officially available 64-bit browser for Windows.
Installations page seen at Which version of Java should I download for my Windows 64-bit operating system?
Better install both, x32 & x64 on already x64 platforms....as the two IE are provided by MS.

I think the rumor mill is spreading faster then any actual exploitation of any flaws with Java! Java zero-day flaw under active attack | Zero Day | ZDNet.com

As far as the main variety page for the different Java releases I generally keep that in the IE Favorites. Both 32bit and 64bit IEs just saw the #19 a week ago and now for the #20.
