    Exclamation ZoneAlarm Free with Virus checker and Java7 Update 5,6,7,8,9

    Hi

    To get Java 7 update 5 to work with ZoneAlarm Free with virus checker I have to set the Firewall setting for the Public Zone to Medium. This could be a security problem.

    It seam that Oracle (the Java authors) are blaming security software as the problems with their Java on certain machines, although Java6 update33 runs along side Zonealarm with no need to reduce the security settings on the Firewalls Public Zone. Unfortunately it seam that Oracle are no going to update Java6 Update 33 after November 2012 thus leaving it open to obuse.

    There is obivously a conflict between Zonealarm firewall (and probably others) and Java7.5 and Oracle appear to be brushing off the responsibilty.

    Are you aware of any action by CheckPoint to try and rectify this incompatablity??

    The issue is in java 7 and NOT ZA.

    Java has worked just fine with our default setting for over 10 years.

    As soon as Java 7 was introduced they broke something in the Java 7 code with some firewalls.

    ZA didn't upgrade its software and cause the issue it was the Java 7 upgrade that broke.

    There nothing to fix in ZA.

    We suggest you complain to them and state just this. Then remove Java 7 and download Java 6.

    Hi;

    NOTE: if version 6 works while new version 7 doesn't then Oracle has broken something in JAVA 7 and they need to look at it.

    Please report you problem to Oracle that latest version have broken the compatibility with ZA and install back the latest build of Java version 6 you will find here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html

    Just an update taken from another forum. So, hopefully they will fix it before the EOL of version 6.
    For other users please keep report to Oracle the bug to keep the pressure on them.

    EDIT: This is not fixes in latest JAVA 7 Update 7. Please keep reporting the bug to Oracle. More reports more likely they will look into it earlier than later.
