If you use webstart for javafx applets, which is the prescribed way to deploy javafx applets according to the javafx 1.2.3 sdk, they no longer work post a security patch pushed out by Microsoft yesterday morning.

The security threat is described here:

Okay so the script is back at its location but now in IE, viewing javafx.com examples, I receive a new dialog I've never seen before: "Java has discovered application components that could be a security concern"

What is this? And how come we've had no comment from Oracle on this?
