Java 7 Update and Agent Download

Java 7 Windows Update

Starting today, the managed install of Java 7 update 25 will begin updating Windows computers that have a version of Java 7 less than update 25.  You should reboot, and when you type ctrl-alt-del to log in, you will see a screen noting that software is being installed (see screenshot below). About 537 Java 7 machines are vulnerable and need the update! 

This message box will appear on Windows computers while Device Management updates Java  

Windows computers with Java 6, will not be updated. Java 6 is no longer supported without paid contract to Oracle and will receive no more security updates on Windows. However, the removal of Java 6 and earlier versions, including replacement with Java 7, is a later step in our program.

Device Management Agent Download

For special situations (Macs, Windows systems not in domain, etc.) your tech support may direct you to the "Get the Agent!" link in the right margin. The link requires a valid Pepperdine Google Apps login to prevent the agent from being distributed on the internet and unrelated computers becoming managed by Pepperdine! You don't need to use the link if you aren't directed to do so by support. If you need to check whether you have the agent or not, see our FAQ.
