Built-in java versions in Release Automation is out of date. It contains quite a lot vulnerabilities that are classified as critical. An urgent java upgrade needs to be applied (at least 1.7.85) to the nolio platforms.

We support the java upgrade during RA agent upgrade as of v6.2. Unless you are running the agent on an operating system that doesn't support Java 8 , the java version should have been upgraded.


Please reach out to support in order to investigate it. 


Thank you,

Nofar, does that mean you will update the JRE in the upcoming releases?  What about the frequent JRE patches that are released?  It would be great to have a way to update our internal JRE without waiting for a new version of CARA...

We are currently working on adding Java 8 support to RA components:

The support for the NAC and the NES will be delivered in RA v5.6 which will be GA in March 25th, 2016.

The support for the agents will be delivered in the following release of RA, there is no official date yet, but it is planned for Q2, 2016.
