Java Security Warning for Symantec Enterprise Protection Mgr Console

Created: 20 May 2010 • Updated: 21 Jun 2010 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit edition with the latest Java Runtime Client installed.  We are running SEP 11 RU5. 

I downloaded the Java based console from our SEPM and when I launch the application I get the following message...

Java has discovered application components that could indicate a security concern.

Block potentially unsafe components from being run? (recommended)
   More Information...
                                                                               [YES]   [NO]

The application contains both signed and unsigned code.
Contact the application vendor to ensure that it has not been tampered with.

Has anyone else received this type of message?  Is there a way to prevent this message from appearing?

Thanks,
Erik

Offcourse if you disable the prompt, you wouldn't know when you will be running "potentially unsafe" components.
The better thing to do is for Symantec to fix the code.

While disabling the option from the JAVA control panel worked to prevent me from getting the message described in this post, I agree with bjohn.  If I disable this check, then I would not get a warning when a different java appliction is launched that is also "potentially unsafe".

Symantec probably should fix their code.

Just another thought... 

Another option would be for the JAVA control panel to give you the ability to store a list of allowed or "trusted" applications.
