When using some versions of Java with SpiraTest, SpiraPlan, SpiraTeam or KronoDesk you may get the following warning message when pasting in screenshots or images:

When I click to paste a screenshot attachment, get Java security warning (see screenshot) which says " Block potentially unsafe components from being run?  Application: appSupa  Java has discovered application components that could indicate a security concern. Contact the application vendor to ensure that it has not been tampered with" with options to Block and Unblock.   "The application contains both signed and unsigned code".

The issue is that the web page uses JavaScript to interact with the signed Java applet which is causing this error.

There's not much we can do about it I'm afraid, and whether this warning appears largely depends on the version of Java that you have.

If you go to Start > Control Panel > Java and then click on the Advanced tab you can choose which warnings/messages appear.

The setting "Mixed code (sandboxed vs. trusted) security verification" I believe is the one you need to change.
