While attempting to run Java-based applet or application, a security warning appears:
'Java has discovered application components that could indicate a security concern.’ This applies to: Java version 6.0 and 6 v19 +.
Signed Java Web Start applications and applets that contain signed and unsigned components could potentially be unsafe unless the mixed code was intended by the application vendor. As of the Java SE 6 Update 19 release, when a program contains both signed and unsigned components, a warning dialog is raised.
- Enable - show warning if needed: This is the default setting. When a potential security risk is encountered, a warning dialog opens.
- Enable - hide warning and run with protections: This option suppresses the warning dialog. The code executes as if the user had clicked No from the warning dialog.
- Enable - hide warning and don't run untrusted code: This option suppresses the warning dialog and behaves as if the user had clicked Yes from the warning dialog.
- Disable verification: This option is not recommended. It completely disables the software from checking for mixed trusted and untrusted code, leaving the user to run potentially unsafe code without protection.
