Apple blocks Java on Macs – Urgent info for Blackboard users!

We have been receiving several reports of incompatibility issues with Blackboard and Wimba recently and have escalated those reports to Blackboard for further investigation. Just today, NBC News is reporting even deeper troubles with Java and Mac computers and report that the newest versions of Java have actually been blocked by Mac due to these serious vulnerability issues. If you have been affected by this, please read this article to learn more about the security risks that have been identified that resulted in Apple blocking the Java updates.

We are working with Blackboard now to see how they plan to address these problems and will post further updates as information becomes available.
