0day Java 7 Exploit - is SEP ready for this one?

I'd like to see if anyone from Symantec Corp monitoring can assure me (us) that Sym Endpoint Prot can block or defeat this. It sounds, looks and smells pretty ominous. Extra concern: In the eMail that this alert was received the authors also indicate that everyone is going to have to move to Java 7 by the end of Feb. I don't know where they got this from but if true, forcing us to Java 7 then may create even more surface area exposure to this one -if- we're not on top of it.
Is this a genuine threat and does this threat need/deserve attention?
And, how much attention will it get from our malware signature publishers at Symantec?
