What is happening: A patch for Internet Explorer (IE) and a patch for all versions of Windows will be fast-tracked for release tomorrow to all academic support computers.

Why is this happening: These patches have been 'fast-tracked' to academic support computers as they address critical security flaws. Full details can be found at https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-009 and  https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/MS15-010.

When is this happening? The patches will be released February 13 at 1:00 a.m.

Please note:

*         Both updates require a restart and machines will be rebooted.

*         Vanguard testers: if you have not yet installed this update, it will be done automatically during this upgrade window.
