Apple has released a Flashback Removal Tool as an update to OS X Lion (10.7) and updates for Java on Mac OS X 10.6 that include a Flashback Removal Tool. These updates address vulnerabilities that could allow malicious users to execute arbitrary code, steal highly confidential data and take control of affected computers.
The IT Security Office advises applying the updates as soon as possible. These updates may require a restart; please plan accordingly.
If you have any questions, please contact the IT Service Center at 303-735-4357 (or 5-HELP from an on-campus phone) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone help is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
This Java update disables the Java applet plug-in by default in Java Preferences. As you may know, the campus’s Network Connect VPN requires that the Java applet plug-in be enabled in order to connect. Learn more about this issue and how to enable the Java applet plug-in.
