Hi, in response to a recent release by The Department of Homeland Security that users should remove the latest version of Java software, Oracle Corp. made an update to Java and provided instructions to raise the security. However, many experts are concerned that other security problems could arise and suggest that users disable Java even after installing the update.
Here are your options:
1) Disable Java in browsers. Select your web browser for instructions:
- PCs, Macs, or Linux
- Chrome: Type or paste chrome://plugins/ into your browser's window. Scroll to Java (TM), and click "Disable." Be sure to disable all versions.
- Internet Explorer
2) Uninstall Java completely
- Oracle says that keeping old versions of Java "presents a serious security risk."
Please contact us if you have any questions or would like assistance in making sure your computers are not at risk.
