Microsoft Security Patch Releases

ITS is deploying the latest Microsoft Security and Critical patches on ITS-managed WPI-owned computers.

Why

Regular updates are made to maintain the security and functionality of ITS-managed WPI-owned computers.

Impact

Computers should remain powered on and will likely reboot during the process.
Conference room computers that are powered on will receive the updates and automatically reboot, leaving them in a ready state for meetings.

For computers that are powered off or disconnected from the WPI network, anticipate the maintenance to run once the machine powers-on and connects to the WPI network. The machine will update then reboot when the patches have completed.

Action Needed

For ITS-Managed WPI-Owned Computers, prior to leaving today please prepare for the updates as follows:

  • Save all of your work and close all programs.
  • Log off of your computer.
  • Leave the computer powered on.

For computers not managed by ITS, please ensure that you perform the latest operating system updates. Patching these vulnerabilities is critical to preventing the machine from being hacked.
