There is no need to set your Java security settings to medium after updating to the latest version of Java.
With Java, a Java control panel is installed. If you open this, on the security tab, you can add exceptions.
If you add the full URL of your Webmin / usermin server, including the portnumber (so https://yourserver:1000) to this exception site list, you can use the java applet without changing the security level to medium.
I hope this works for you too.
Hi Jamie –
I hate to be a pain, because I know you’ve been working on this, but I’m wondering if you can provide an update on the SSL cert issue affecting java applets within Webmin. Our Internal Security team has told us this is no longer an acceptable tool for us to use at this point because of the issue which has required us to either tell users not to accept the latest java updates, or set their Java security settings down to Medium. Neither solution is acceptable to Security.
I’d hate to have to replace Webmin/Usermin at this point because it has been very good to us… but I may have no choice if a resolution isn’t in the near future.
