I recently applied the Java 7 update 21 patch to my workstation, but when I now run OSI I receive a security warning from Java: "Java has discovered application components that could indicate a security concern. Contact the application vendor to ensure that it has not been tampered with. Block potentially unsafe components from being run?" You're then given a choice of a "Yes", "No", or "Help" button.

I'm not sure if this is now going to be the norm running any Java components via a web request or if there is something Secunia can do to avoid Java flagging OSI.

It looks like it might be running into this:
http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/gui...

The article also shows the method to hide the warning.

There are more new Java security warnings described in http://java.com/en/download/help/appsecuritydialog...

Thank you for pointing out this issue with the latest version of Oracle Java JRE. We are currently considering if there is anything we can do to avoid these pop-ups from Java.
