Terminal Command for unchecking "Auto Update Safe downloads list" OS X 10.6.8 ?
Authored by: jimmmm on Feb 04, '13 08:35:01AM

Is there a terminal command I can send out via ARD that will do the equivilant of un-checking the "Automatically update safe downloads list" for all users ? And one that willedit the Xprotect.meta.plist to get JAVA working again and keep it working on Mac OS X 10.6.8 computers ?

We are a school district and our main school data application on our Mac OS X 10.6.8 computers will not function completely without Java (Infinite Campus/Gradebook won't work). We have to edit the Xprotect.meta.plist to get Java working again, then un-check "Automatically update safe downloads list" in Security control panel on thousands of computers. We are looking for some terminal commands to resolve this via ARD.
Our service provider, an entity that works in all school in our area, has blocked the malicious attacks at firewalls and such and we have antivirus running on all computers so we should be somewhat safe with Apples items disabled until the Oracle/ JAVA issue is resolved or until infinite campus gets a fix for JAVA issues from Oracle.
Any info/comments are well appreciated. Thanks in advance.
