Before the new school year begins, the Saint Louis University community is encouraged to make sure their computers are secure and up-to-date. August security patches for Microsoft Windows have been sent to all PCs Aug. 19. Customers who'd like to install the updates for themselves can find step-by-step instructions on the ITS website.
Updates must be applied before 4 a.m. Friday, Aug. 23, otherwise, ITS will install them for everyone at that time.
Security and application updates help protect PCs from vulnerabilities and are an important way to guard against viruses.
Updates do not apply until the computer is rebooted, so customers should restart their computer on Friday. In general, it is a good habit to restart computers a few times a week.
For more information or assistance, contact the ITS Service Desk at 314-977-4000.
