 +====== Impact of the October 2012 Java Update to OS X Lion and Mountain Lion ======
  
 +===== Introduction =====
 +
 +Mac users on OS X Lion (version 10.7.x) and OS X Mountain Lion (version 10.8.x) received a security update from Apple in October 2012. This update (Java for OS X 2012-006) uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all web browsers. 
 +
 +The purpose of this update was to resolve security vulnerabilities in an earlier version of Java. Users can fix this by downloading the latest version of Java from [[http://www.java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp|Oracle's website]].
 +===== Impact on Open Mobile for Mac =====
 +
 +Without Java, Open Mobile clients will not be able to connect to a VPN. Users who have a VPN configured and who have not already done so should navigate to Oracle's website to download the latest version of Java: http://www.java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp.
 +
 +Users who have installed this security update and have not installed the latest version of Java will have the following experience:
 +  * Users who have **Hide VPN GUI when launching** enabled will not be able to connect to the VPN, and they will not see a notification to download java. These users should be directed to navigate to the [[http://www.java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp|Oracle Java website]] to install the latest version of Java. Once the latest version of Java is installed, the user will be able to connect successfully only after he restarts the current VPN connection.   
 +  * Users who do not have **Hide VPN GUI when launching** enabled will see a missing plug-in notification with a download button. Clicking the download button will redirect the user to the [[http://www.java.com/en/download/mac_download.jsp|Oracle Java website]] to install the update. Once the latest version of Java is installed, the user will be able to connect successfully only after he restarts the current VPN connection. 
 +
 +After the user installs the latest version of Java from Oracle, the VPN works as expected. We have found no other issues in our testing.
