JavaFX on the Mac OS: Security Warning
By Christine Dorffi on Jul 27, 2009
Check out the MAC applet blog entry regarding the new security warning on Macs. It's directed to Mac users who access javafx.com pages with embedded applets and who now see this warning:
To prevent the message from appearing, check
Allow all applets from "javafx.com" access.
It happens because Apple has changed to a site/URL-based security model in one of its recent Java updates. In previous updates of Java for Mac OS X, unless the applet was cached a Trust dialog box appeared with different text and unrestricted access information in the fine print: This applet was signed by "JavaFX Runtime," but Java cannot verify the authenticity of the signature's certificate. Click Trust to run this applet and allow it unrestricted access to your computer.
For more technical information about Java for Mac OS X v10.5 Update 4, see the Apple support documentation.
