Hi - I just opened MultiTerm Desktop 2011 (I have just applied SP1 so I guess I have 2014 somewhere but hey). I also, yesterday, after installing both SP1s, updated Java because it had security updates. So I think I'm on 8.1.

Anyway - when I selected to create a new Entry, it is prompting me to run a new app (did the same for Trados 2014 when first ran after update) Publisher SDL PLC, Location file://, 'This application will run with unrestricted access' etc (which did not enchant me then); this time, it adds 'This application will be blocked in a future Java security update because the JAR file manifest does not contain the Permissions attribute. Please contact the Publishers for more info.'

More info here
Clicking Run allows the application to run with unrestricted access to your personal files and other resources on your computer (for example, web cam and microphone).

more blah

Note to Publisher: Security features to prevent unauthorized redistribution of your Java application will cause the application to be blocked in the future. See current Java documentation about JAR Manifest entries...

blah. So, well, nice to get advance warning. Can't say I'm too happy about how your app is handling access, but whatever - you'll HAVE to fix this one pretty sharpish, eh!

Happy weekend...

Oh - anytime anyone would like to tell me how to paste screen shots here... would be delighted
