It’s nice to know that all PolicyPak customers have the fire extinguisher ready to fix these problems at any time.

Java users are patiently awaiting a rollout to fix two security vulnerabilities that landed Java a security alert on the Department of Homeland Security website. In the meantime; many IT administrators are turning to PolicyPak to temporarily disable Java on their machines until the dust settles.

The two zero day vulnerabilities in Java 7 are being actively exploited by attackers, which led to the security alert. The PolicyPak software gives admins the ability to manage and lockdown almost all areas of Java on a client machine using Group Policy, SCCM or any desktop management software.

PolicyPak can also prevent Java from updating on certain users’ computers or all computers in an environment. A video on how to remediate the current Java problem can be found on the PolicyPak website.

Oracle’s Java isn’t the first application to land themselves on the Department of Homeland Security’s alert list. Other vendors like Adobe, Cisco, Google and Microsoft have all appeared on the list. PolicyPak has solutions to manage applications from each of these vendors as well as dozens of others as well.

Jeremy Moskowitz, founder of PolicyPak and Group Policy MVP says, “It’s nice to know that all PolicyPak customers have the fire extinguisher ready to fix these problems at any time. It’s not enough for IT admins and managers to be aware of the problem. They need tools in place to fix and remediate the problem – today and going foward.”
