The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022 (for a list of what's in scope, see the FAQ). The same IE11 apps and sites you use today can open in Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode. Learn more here.
This step-by-step article describes how to set Java security in Internet Explorer. You can configure Internet Explorer with default security settings or with custom security settings. The custom security settings explicitly define Java permissions for signed and unsigned applets. The Microsoft Virtual Machine must be installed to configure the custom Java permissions.

View and change Java custom settings for each security zone
To configure Java security in Internet Explorer:
Start Internet Explorer, and then click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab.
There are four security zones on the Security page:
- Local intranet
- Trusted Sites
- Restricted Sites
Select the zone on which you want to change the Java security settings.
In the Security level for this zone frame, click Custom Level. In Internet Explorer, click Custom Level, and then click Settings.
View the Microsoft VM section (the Java section in Internet Explorer)
In the list of Java Permissions under the Microsoft VM, click Custom.
Click Java Custom Settings.
Click the View Permissions tab to view the current Java permissions. The Java permissions are grouped in three main categories:
- Permissions Given to Unsigned Content
Unsigned Java applets that request these permissions can run without bringing up a user prompt.
- Permissions That Signed Content Are Allowed
Signed Java applets that requests these permissions can run without user prompting.
- Permissions That Signed Content Are Denied
Signed Java applets are denied these permissions.
- Permissions Given to Unsigned Content
Click the Edit Permissions tab. Select the option you need for more exact control over Java permissions for the zone. If you do not want to keep the settings that you have made, you can click the Reset button to reset permissions to:
- Saved permissions
- High Security
- Medium Security
- Low Security
Click OK, and then click OK again.
Use caution when you adjust Java permissions. Some Java-based programs may not work properly after you change permissions. Some changes to Java permissions can make your computer liable to security breaches by hackers. Microsoft recommends that you do not change the default permissions unless you have a specific purpose for doing so.
It's been a rough couple of weeks for Java. Security issues are dogging the code, the latest fix may cause almost as many problems as it solves, and now Apple has decided to block Java completely.
French blog MacGeneration originally picked up the blockade, noticing that an update to Apple's XProtect now blocks all versions of Java on OS X 10.6 (aka Snow Leopard) and above, the second time in two weeks Apple has blocked Oracle's code.
Apple, along with browser manufacturers, started blocking Java when a major security hole was discovered in the code earlier in the month. Oracle downplayed its significance, but then was forced to admit that it had a problem and rushed out a code patch (with the obligatory offers to install crapware at the same time).
Now Apple has blocked it again, and other players are starting to make moves to get rid of Java as far as possible. On Tuesday, Mozilla announced it was ending the auto-loading of plug-ins for Firefox – while not actually mentioning Java by name – and Apple has already stopped bundling it with OS X by default.

The security status of Java has been under review for some time, with increasing numbers of people removing it as a precaution. Given Oracle's somewhat lackadaisical attitude towards patching its software, developers are increasingly looking for other options to avoid introducing weaknesses into their code.
But Apple's decision could spur the Java team to sort out their issues once and for all. Certainly if feedback from El Reg readers on our forums is any indication, the code is about as popular as an explosive piñata.
Both Oracle and Apple have felt unable to respond to a request for information on the issue. ®
