JLab Cybersecurity Alert: Critical Patch Broadcast for Internet Explorer Tonight

Microsoft has released a critical patch for Internet Explorer. The
patch addresses a vulnerability that could allow remote code execution
if a computer user views a specially crafted webpage using Internet
Explorer. Due to the nature of this vulnerability, the CNI group has
decided to send out the patch to all Computer Center-managed Windows
machines starting tonight. Please log out of all Windows desktop
computers at the end of your workday, but leave them powered on
overnight so that the patch can be installed.

If you experience difficulties with your computer in the morning,
reboot to see if that fixes the problem before calling the HelpDesk
(x7155) for assistance.
