There might be some specific security concerns related to the version of the Java JRE that is included in EEM, and you may wish to update to a newer JRE version. Included are the steps to update the JRE version.
EEM 12.5 or 12.6
Testing was performed with the following version of Java:
"1.8.0_161" (JRE 8 update 161), on the EEM server.

1.  Shut down EEM

In this example it is installed to: C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath
