I don't know if the bug is in Java 6, but if you don't need it, it's a good idea to disable it anyway.

Given how widespread the news is, I can't find the specific link I'm thinking of, but my recollection is that Java 6 is indeed affected. Unfortunately, that's what I've got installed on my Mac. Now that a fix (or should that be "fix") has been released by Oracle, I'll probably install Java 7 over Java 6.
