We have a program that needs to run a local applet from UNC.
Java 1.7.0_21 with High security will give "Your security settings have blocked a local application from running."
Which would have better security?
Java 1.7.0_21 with Medium security or 1.7.0_17 with High security.
7u21 with medium security is better than 7u17 with high security. This is because u21 has fixed 42 security issues. So even with u21 on medium, you're less exposed that the high level of security on u17.
