Looks like there are many reports regarding the detection of the latest Java release. :satdav says on IRC that the plugin check page could have a message for users saying we're working on resolving the issue.
How about a message like this?

Suggested edit for greater clarity:

We are aware of a problem detecting current versions of the Java plugin and misreporting it as vulnerable. We’re working to correct this error. In the meantime, you can <a href="{{ download }}">visit the vendor’s website</a> to download the latest version.

Two small tweaks. One to fix an agreement issue in the first sentence and one to say "Java website" instead of "vendor's website."
