If you use the Google Chrome browser, use the "Click to Play" permission setting for Plug-ins. Go to Settings > Show advanced > Privacy > Content Settings... > Plug-ins "Click to Play"
If you do not need Java for work-related applications, you can  disable the Java browser plug-in:
  • To disable Java in Chrome: in the address bar type chrome://plugins, then find Java(TM) and click the "Disable" link.
  • To disable Java in Firefox: click the orange Firefox button, choose Add-ons, select Plugins on the left of the Add-ons Manager, then click the Disable button next to Java Platform SE 7 U9 (or whatever you have)
  • To disable Java in Internet Explorer: Click the cog icon in the upper right and choose Manage Add-ons, choose the Java(tm) Plug-In SSV Helper and click the Disable button in the lower right corner.
If you are very concerned and have no compelling reason to keep Java,  just un-install it from your system completely by going to Control Panel > Programs and Features. If Oracle resolves the security issue you can reinstall Java later.
