Java Vulnerability Alerts

Java 8

It is very important to update Java to version 8 (as the updates are primarily focused on correcting security issues).  This applied to Windows-based computers (not Macs).

University-owned Computers

  • University-owned, Windows-based machines will receive the Java 8 update automatically, after May 9, 2016.
    Note: University Police and HVAC machines will NOT be updated due to specific systems with which they interact.

Personally-owned (Non University) Windows Computers

  • If prompted, ITS strongly encourages you not to install toolbars.
