Oh, for heaven's sake.
I've been doing systems administration professionally for twenty years and
maintaining and contributing to core computer security software for
fifteen years. I am by any reasonable definition part of the "security
community," and I will tell you that installing a JRE on a system does
nothing more to compromise the security of your system than installing a
compiler or installing Python on your system.
It's a PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE, people! Put the FUD down carefully and step
away from the crack pipe.
