I ran a scan and have a threat in sun java jre 6.x / 6/x so I ran the update and when I re-scan it goes away but within a few minutes it comes back.

Any suggestions?

Hi GJComeaux;

Welcome to the Secunia forum.

> Open "Control Panel", Click on the "Java" icon.
> Click on the "Update" tab.
> Click on the "Update Now" button (bottom right).

Did that fix the problem?

BTW, are you using PSI or OSI?


Regards;

Fred

That is what fixed the problem but I did it the hard way. I forgot were the java program was located. Now I know the eazy way.

I went to the java web site and searched for it.

Thanks for your help Fred.

Hi Gearld;

Just to make sure, the update from Control Panel, Java interface has fixed the problem and Java no longer appears as Insecure. Is that correct?
