    Java is a big securuty risk, see if it's disabled...


    Disable Java in your Browser settings, not JavaScript.






    Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Lion, Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Snow Leopard, and Leopard Security Update 2012-003 disable out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player.

    Out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player do not include the latest security updates and will be disabled to help keep your Mac secure. If Safari 5.1.7 or Leopard Security Update 2012-003 detects an out-of-date version of Flash Player on your system, you will see a dialog informing you that Flash Player has been disabled. The dialog provides the option to go directly to Adobe's website, where you can download and install an updated version of Flash Player.

    Additional Information

    If you need to re-enable an out-of-date version of Flash Player, you can do the following:

        1.    Navigate to the /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (Disabled) folder.

        2.    Drag "Flash Player.plugin" into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins.

        3.    If the browser is running, quit and restart it.





    Locate the version of Java that’s installed on your Mac OS X system.

    1. Open the Utilities folder and run the Terminal application.

    2. Type java -version and press Enter.

    (space between java & -v important)

    The version of Java that you have installed will then be displayed on the screen.
