Java Vulnerability Alerts
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, 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
- Go to http://www.java.com and follow the directions to download the free Java release.
- If prompted, ITS strongly encourages you not to install toolbars.
