Information Technology
4.) Update on Java 7 security issue
According to Oracle Corp., installing the most recent update to Java 7 (update 11) will fix the security vulnerability that has recently been exploited. However, many other entities, including Homeland Security, warn that unless it is absolutely necessary to run Java in Web browsers, it should be disabled due to continuing vulnerabilities. Functionality for some UofL sites such as Blackboard may not be available if Java is disabled. Users may re-enable Java to perform these functions, but should be made aware of possible security risks when doing so. Instructions on disabling Java (PDF).
