If it is the latter, the security warnings apply to any program one downloads from the web, not just Java apps.
If the Interactive Color Wheel were a money-making venture, I would be very tempted to sue.You must be American. Who would you sue, and why on earth would you think you have a case?

Every time a page with an applet is loaded, they show a security-block panel which must be clicked before the applet runs. Internet Explorer, though, does run applets normally, with no warning. It may have asked me one time if I wanted to run them, but I forget the details.
jwenting, Being fixed is good news. This weekend, though, Oracle's head of Java security held a [url http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9236230/Oracle_s_Java_security_head_We_will_fix_Java_communicate_better]phone conference. He talked about how Oracle was taking security very seriously, and that current issues would be resolved quickly. It was future tense, so I did not see it as announcing a fix.
