This vulnerability, CVE-2011-3544, has been patched in Java 6 Update 29 and Java 7 Update 1. Updating your installed version of Java will protect you. Also, Norton IPS includes a signature for this attack and will block it. If you fall victim to this exploit you will have only yourself to blame.

As an addendum with reference to this Java issue ....
Anyone who also uses any of the many Linux distros' should also make sure the update is applied as the popular Ubuntu releases from V10.4 upwards through to the current V.11 releases are also vulnerable along with Red Hat ,Mandriva and other distributions ! Be safe out there
