Re-enable Java on OSX 10.6

Java security issue found, stupid Apple disables Java remotely (YES REMOTELY !!!!),

So can’t access KVM over IP, server down, being unproductive…all because of Apple !!!

To re-enable, open terminal,  find installed version:

root# java -version

java version “1.6.0_37”

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06-434-10M3909)

Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.12-b01-434, mixed mode)

Note the build number (434), edit file, and replace 435 with 434 (defining minimal version allowed to run)

~ root#  nano /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/XProtect.meta.plist

replace:

1.6.0_37-b06-435

with

1.6.0_37-b06-434

save, reopen browser, and you are ready to go.
