IMT Says No Need to Disable Java

Although recent media reports have recommended that computer users disable Java because of a security vulnerability, Information Management and Technology is confident that its multi-layered use of security technologies is protecting devices connected to the university's computer network very effectively, and that Java, which is critical to many things we do on our computers at work or in the classroom each day, doesn't need to be disabled.

While there is no such thing as 100 percent security, at UNC several technologies are stacked, each acting as its own wall to keep as much malicious activity out as possible, including the latest threat to Java.

IMT's teams keep abreast of the latest news and threats, and diligently respond accordingly to keep computer users as safe as possible.

If you have specific concerns you would like addressed, please contact the Technical Support Center at 970-351-4357.
