When you do not need Java, and you only cannot do without it on rare occasions, you better uninstall.
It is a never ending story of zero-days. Like the Janus gate in Rome, as Rome was allways at war somewhere, the gate was never closed (at peace time),so they made that gate a passthrough later.

More malvertising than ever before: http://www.invincea.com/2015/07/advanced-endpoint-threat-trend-highlights-june-2015-malvertising-gone-wild/
I hope users understand why they cannot go without a decent ad-blocker, I personally use uBlock Origin combined with Adguard and the general protection of Avast (account protection and shields)  and Avast Online Security.
Google has a large specialist team to fight mal-ads, but still a lot of SEO Spam, criminal, scam and fraudulent ads slips through or is silently condoned. Use click-to-play for Flash content!
Blocking third party content with uMatriux in Google Chrome will help or work your firefox browser with NoScript and RequestPolicy extensions.

180 million users that stayed on XP now run serious risks as support for it ended!
MSRT does no longer function on XP. 12% of the users now out on an unsupported OS,
that is a  scary situation and a danger also!

Cybercriminals will have "a walk in the park" with XP!

Sorry but this is more FUD from MS trying to kill it off and buy win10. This tune hasn't changes for the years leading up to and after XP support was ended and the world is still spinning.
 
There are some people that it doesn't matter what OS they use, they are likely to get hit because of unsafe practices and others who are unlikely to get hit because of their safe practices.

But there are others that find it hard to mitigate because lack of an alternative. Large department stores with XP driven cash systems are left out in the cold.
And I agree with you there are millions out there that should not have a "puter" because the way they run it is endangering themselves and others also. Driving an OS without a license should be considered as an offense.
