With yet another Java update on a computer at work I was reading A close look at how Oracle installs deceptive software with Java updates - ZDNet Ed Bott. I did disable the "install ask.com toolbar" option. Java plugin security question

At the end, the java update guides the browser to http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre which says it is "Verifying Installation". But according to the Java security prompt it needs "unrestricted access which may put your computer and personal information at risk."
I picked "Cancel".
