works fine with my ff and safari 4. opera seems to devliver it's own java-re, nothing happends with it here.
anyway, what this exploit does: it calls '/usr/bin/say' to do that sound output. it could be doing 'many different' things, of course ;)
well, and all of this, because apple is still behind of releasing a java update for osx and to us regular users. it has been seeded to developers some time ago but we (non-paying adc-peeps) are still waiting for it...
sun's closed these security holes a half year ago and even though it's still a drive-by-download 'feature', most users just 'will' click where told. sooner or later, this will become some serious problem if apple doesn't start caring about issues like these in a more apropriate time frame.
not too long ago, 'it-experts' all around the world recommended to disable active-x in the IE - now the same so called 'it-experts' yell for disabling java in OSX browsers. however, *lol*, they still recommend to disable java on other platforms just in case and anyway ;)
and for anyone interested, some dev info about the exploit
everyone capable of using a java compiler should be able to write custom exploits that simply work and actually do things ;)

Java exploit has been made public, many OSX browsers affected
a 'java update' that addresses this problem is now available to anyone through e.g. the software-update!
The applet has been disabled.
