ZDNet - Two more Java Zero Day Exploits found. 
security researcher Adam Gowdiak said his firm (Security Explorations) had examined the latest Java 7 software update, released on February 19, and found two new security issues—dubbed Issue 54 and Issue 55—which "when combined together, can be successfully used to gain a complete Java security sandbox bypass in the environment of Java SE 7 (Update 15)."
Oracle is treating one of the submitted exploits as expected or allowed behavior.

Checked out the usual pages this morning, no mention of the MIT Swatting attempt;  Neither claims of responsibility or a decrying of the action.  Not that I really expected a reaction but I do find it curious.
