Windows 7: Oracle finally adds whitelisting capabilities to Java

Oracle finally adds whitelisting capabilities to Java

Oracle added a feature in Java that lets companies control what specific Java applets are allowed to run on their endpoint computers, which could help them better manage Java security risks.

The new feature is called the "Deployment Rule Set" and was added in Java 7 Update 40 (Java 7u40) that was released Tuesday.

Many home users can protect themselves from attacks targeting Java by disabling the Java plug-in in their browsers or uninstalling the software completely. However, most companies can't do this, because their employees need access to Web-based, business-critical applications that require Java support.
