Attention Windows users: Reboot required to protect your machine against an Internet Explorer vulnerability
May. 1, 2014 by jtaft
Microsoft has recently released a software patch fixing a serious vulnerability in their Internet Explorer (IE) Web browser. The patch is available for installation via Windows Update. Most Wesleyan PCs are configured to automatically install this patch at 6PM this evening, but the process requires that machines be rebooted to activate the patch. PC users should reboot their machines tomorrow morning to complete the installation process. Until your machine is patched, we advise using Firefox or Chrome Web browsers.
Please note that only PCs running Windows are affected by this issue. Mac and Linux machines require no action.
