Java is not allowed on computers in this house, for that very reason. DHS, in an unusual step, recently issued a warning about Java, triggered by yet another 0-day exploit, saying it would take a minimum of 2 years for Oracle to fix all the security problems.
And that seems strange to me, since the original idea IIRC was to provide a "sandbox" that would provide an environment for running programs in a secure and safe way. I guess that was lost sight of, years ago.
