Hey there! I currently operate my oekaki board for over a decade now.
When I updated to Java 8 Update 20 (and higher) on my Windows Vista Ultimate x64 PC, any attempts to access the Java applet on my oekaki throws this error message:
Application Blocked by Java Security: For security, applications must now meet the requirements for the High or Very High security settings, or be part of the Exception Site List, to be allowed to run. More Information.
Oracle had been informing people for sometime that Java would hard block unsigned applets. I had failed to realise that the oekaki that I've been running has unsigned applets and Oracle has been calling it a policy issue.
Is there any way to fix the issue involving Java and unsigned applets without having to break legacy compatibility with older browsers?
(I'm currently running Windows 95 under VMware Player with 64 MB of memory, Firefox 1.5 and Java 22.214.171.124 installed and I don't have a problem with it at all. If you feel that I placed this thread in the wrong part of the forum, I apologise.)
