Our security scanner has identified the version of java that's bundled
with SimpleHelp as having known security risks. However, SimpleHelp
doesn't seem to be in a hurry to fix this. As an experiment, I switched
simpletest.uvm.edu to use OpenJDK instead of the bundled java version.
It seems to start up and connect fine, but it it would probably be a
good idea to put it through its paces and make sure there aren't any
problems hidden within.
Could I ask a few of you to test it out and see how it performs in the wild?
