There's nothing I've heard of, but the next exploit is probably just around the corner. Java applets have been relentlessly exploited. If you are going to use any, be extremely careful where.
Doesn't matter which browser or which browser version.

Disable Java and don't use if possible.
Another option is to use Firefox and the NoScript extension, then drag a Temp Allow All Button to the menu bar.
You also can set it pernamently for that page also.
Firefox + NoScipt has saved my machine from being pwned twice, so I well recommned using it.
