15 Security: Application Updates 5/29/201315Computer Services Java Sometimes, a Java update can break connections to INB, but that is rare and can be corrected easily Generally, it is best to go ahead and update INB and many other applications wont rely on client-side Java for too much longer Adobe Microsoft Windows In the near future, antivirus updates on-campus will be provided through Windows Updates
