Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice and Java Security:


Hi,

Thank you for the links.

I am currently on Mac OSX 10.6 Snow Leopard with Java disabled on
LibreOffice and it is working normally.
I will test out the  Java 7 on Mac OSX Mountain Lion for the fixed
vulnerability in Java. The Mac OSX Mountain Lion System is running Java SE6
with LibreOffice at the momment. I think it is version 1.6.37.
That is the standard version which I installed when OSX Mountain Lion
prompted me to install Java for LibreOffice, when I first installed it and
ran the application.
 Mac OSX Mountain Lion does not come pre-installed with Java Software.

Note that the vulnerabilities "only affect Oracle Java 7 versions."

Hi all,
I am not sure if this is the correct list for this message.
I recently read this article about a Java 1.7 Security Problem.
Does this problem concern LibreOffice and Java???
This macrumors article post and reads that this problem effects java
versions 4-7. At the moment oracle are at java 7.

The Forbes article reveals that Mozilla, and Apple are advising users to
disable Java on there machines because of this security problem.

Can I use LibreOffice without Java enabled on my computer?? As I receive
annoying pop up windows when I first use libreoffice to install Java on
Apple OS X Mountain Lion.
