Java 1.8 Update 73 being distributed to SHU workstations

After successful User Acceptance Testing for software updates before distribution, we are currently distributing Java 1.8 Update 73 to SHU Managed Desktop workstations.

This update will remove any existing Java JRE and replace it Java 1.8 Update 73.

This update has been released in order to resolve critical flaws with previous versions of Java.
We are aware that some applications do not work with Java 1.8 and areas such as HR and FD will not use 1.8 until these issues are resolved.

The update will only install when the workstation is at the ctrl+alt+del login screen.

The rollout will begin with Adsetts and then progress through other areas of the University until all workstations have the update.
