My understanding was that as long as the software is still being actively patched, it's okay to continue using it. So I use the latest patched versions of Adobe Reader 9, Internet Explorer 8, and Java 6. Java 6 Update 32 was released 2012-04-26 with no security fixes. Update 31, which I was running when I went to the malicious site, was released 2012-02-14 with 14 security fixes. (Java version history) Why does SecurityCheck consider these to be out of date?
That's why it is important to always use the most current Java Version and remove outdated Java components.
You can verify (test) your JAVA Software Installation & Version here. Your SecurityCheck log shows it is out of date (Java™ 6 Update 32)

Also make sure you pick the correct one for your operating system on the download page after you sign the agreement.
Verify your version
Note: UNcheck any unwanted toolbars/programs if offered.
Why should I upgrade to Java 7?
Java SE 7 is the latest release for Java that contains many new features, enhancements and bug fixes to improve efficiency to develop and run Java programs.
The link has been fixed.
BTW, the Java cache directory link is dead
