The, "intent" is to protect your Mac against the flashback trojan.
If you think your Mac is infected with the flashback trojan, then you need to install this update > Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 8
You should install that update to be on the safe side regardless of whether or not you have Java enabled in Safari > Preferences - Security.
It's relatively easy and only takes a few minutes.
Keeping your Mac OS X software up to date is the best defense against malware.
I have scanned my system a few times over the last month, and nothing is ever found.
If you are runnnig a/v software, it's doubtful it would locate the files and even if it did, it wouldn't remove them.

I may with caution do one machine at a time, the Java update.
I need to investigate the Trojan issue further that others did fall victim to.
Little by little, getting gun shy as too many updates edging to use Lion.
As always, you are highly respected on matters that always fix what ails us.
To Add -
From posts a couple weeks ago on the Trojan issue, I did run what was suggested by one of the reps here.
I forget what it was that was used.
