I tried to access my WebMO account at my institution (Virginia Tech) today and was prompted to update my Java plugin before proceeding. After performing this update to Version 7 Update 51, the new Java plugin refuses to let any of the web applets to run due to its internal security settings. This 'protection' has rendered WebMO useless to me. I have tried using both Safari 7 and FireFox for Mac OS X and Internet Explorer for Windows 7. Any suggestions on how I enter exceptions to allow WebMO to work again through a browser (any browser)?

Thank you, Oracle. Two options:

1) Upgrade to WebMO 14 resolves this completely, as we switched to fully signed Java applets
2) You can reduce the Java security settings from High to Medium in the Java control panel. This effectively reverts to the prior settings.
