I hate to point this out for, whatever group of people you fit into, Oracle fixed this exploit over 3 months ago in Java. This Microsoft Office vulnerability was patched years ago for Win users.
Also note, that Java maintenance is Apple's responsibility for the OS X platform. It always has been. It is also likely that all software patching of Office is also handle through Apple.
No system is ever safe or more secure if it has users.

Then you obviously don't know how to use your 980x system if you are using it for gaming or that you think any particular system that comes from a store can match or rival anything you can build / program yourself (ala install Linux). It amazes me that people see Mac's as something other than Personal Computers, they are personal computers like anything else you would by from Dell or HP. The only difference is the flavor of software, and when it comes to "flavor" its user's experience / personal tastes. Sour candy is the best for me, but someone else it is chocolate. Both are still candy, and equally make my bottom round. Just like a Windows or Mac PC. You can just enjoy Win PC in its complete customizability, Linux for its raw performance, integrity or security, and Mac OSX for its pretty security and closedness.
