Issue/Introduction

Description:

There are two options. One option is to click 'RUN' every time the Security Warning popup displays. With this option you will need to click 'RUN' numerous times. The second option is to change your JAVA Security Level to Medium. You will only need to do this one time. Either option will enable the application to run.

Figure 1

Oracle released Java 7 Update 11 on January 13, 2013, to fix a critical security flaw inherent in all previous versions of Java 7, the default Security Level was hanged to High, which means, "a user will be prompted before any unsigned Java application runs in the browser."

Figure 2

Oracle introduced new security features to its Java web browser plug-in when it released Java 7 Update 10 on December 11, 2012.
The new features are accessed from the Java Control Panel's Security tab. The new security features allow a user to enable/disable Java content for all web browsers rather than needing to manually disable Java in each individual web browser, and to set a Security Level for Java content in web browsers. The default Security Level was Medium, which means, "Unsigned Java apps in the browser will run without prompting only if the Java version is considered secure."

Figure 3

As such, when a user updates their Java version to Java 7 Update 11, their Security Level is configured to a higher default setting than previously configured by default, and an unexpected "click-to-run" Security Warning will display when the Java content is encountered in the web browser.

The Security Warning asks, "Do you want to run this application ?"
