Java 7 update 11: Insecure version prompt with upgrade button
We recently deployed Java 7 update 11, now that 13 was released we have been getting tons of calls on the below dialog (dialog pops when going to a java page):
This seems like a new dialog/update path that we do not want. We manage java, the users should not install it.
I know this is tied to the security changes in Java, that is another issue we know about and know how to manage but the above prompt does not seem disable-able at least not globally.
I have found that this dialog adds some registry values:
deployment.expiration.decision.10.11.2=later ("never" seems to work as long as you put it in the deployment.properties file and delete the registry key so it reloads when java control panel is launched)
deployment.expiration.decision.suppression.10.11.2=fale (true will remove prompt but again tricky since the java control panel will over-write on some occations...).
What really worries me is that these settings are tied to a specific version of java (10.11.2=7 update 11). I worry that the next release will change the entries (say to 10.13.2=7 update 13) and any disabling will be for naught.
I I I cannot find any official documentation on those regkeys or the dialog. Anyone run into this?
I have found only one other referrence to this on the web, it is on Oracles own site... no solutions there but more info:
