So would disabling the Java browser plugin stop this exploit?
yes.. if you want to disable "java", to do that, go into windows "control panel", click "java" and, in the settings, there, find the option for disabling java and disable it.. you could also disable the java plugins/addons in the browsers that you use, from within the browsers' settings-options..
if you use the "chrome" browser, which comes with its own version of "java", i think that the only way that you can disable "java" in it is from within chrome's settings-options..
Also, would putting Microsoft EMET to work on the browser help mitigate the exploit?
my guess is that EMET would not mitigate the vulnerability since, from what i read, the vulnerability does not involve crashing "java" or the browser, which is the type of thing that EMET is intended to prevent..
