I accidentally deleted the Java applet plug in from my computer and since then the plug-in is blocked. How do I get it back? I've tried countless times to install the java version on Apple as well from the Java sight but now nothing is working what do I do?

    The newly discovered zero-day flaw in Java 7 is so serious that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has warned users to disable or uninstall it, and Apple has disabled the Java 7 plugin on Macs through its OS X anti-malware system, in order to protect users from a potentially serious security issue.
