NETWORK UPGRADE NOTICE
Scheduled Network Upgrade Saturday, November 1 - 10:00pm
The Office of Information Systems will be performing a scheduled network upgrade on Saturday, November 1 beginning at 10:00 pm. During this upgrade we will be installing a next-generation firewall and security platform using devices from Palo Alto. This upgrade will also provide additional internet bandwidth to all campuses. We expect the upgrade to take 2 – 3 hours to complete. During this period all network services with the exception of email will be impacted. All email services are externally hosted and will not be impacted during this period.
IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM THE IT DEPARTMENT
Earlier this week Microsoft issued an advisory describing a Zero-Day vulnerability in its PowerPoint program. Malicious code can be executed in PowerPoint documents that are sent via email. Microsoft has not yet released a security update to patch this issue, however, they have made a temporary fix available. If you use PowerPoint and share your files using email, you should apply this fix. You can access it at https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3010060 . Look for the “Fix it for me” section. You can safely click on the fix it button under “Enable this Fix” and follow the instructions on screen.
