Work at SourceForge, help us to make it a better place! We have an immediate need for a Support Technician in our San Francisco or Denver office.
So we have end users who are upgrading Java to the latest version 1.7.0_51, with this move the File manager app is now reporting an error, and that it will no longer support unsigned applets. Is there a fix for this? or are there work arounds? I mean on the Webmin side as opposed to the Java side. I know that I can modify and change the Java control panel settings (Windows 7) at least to allow some work arounds but doesnt this open up more security issues? I was wondering what could be changed on the Webmin side to not get these alerts. I am running webmin on CentOS. I have upgraded the java on the centOS side but that doesnt appear to correct the issue either.
Thanks for any help- I searched around and havent found a good answer to how Java and the Webmin file manager play together. So if this is redundant Ill take any and all recent discussions around it.
This is the error message:
"This application will be blocked in a future Java security update because the JAR file manifest does not contain the Permissions attribute. Please contact the Publisher for more information. "
