What is happening: Two patches for Microsoft products will be fast-tracked for release 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/en-us/library/security/MS15-043 and https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/MS15-044.

When is this happening? Thursday, May 14 at 11:00 p.m.

Please note:

*         Clients can install the updates before the 11:00 p.m. deadline via the software centre.

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

Questions or concerns? Please contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 44357.
