Many of you may have heard or read in the news of the recent vulnerability in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Microsoft has released a work around until a patch is designed to fix this issue. SPH IT is now pushing out this work around to SPH configured Windows 7 PCs. Once this is done the risk is mitigated until the patch is released fixing the vulnerability.
For those not using a Windows PC configured by the SPH IT department or using any Windows XP PC (which is no longer supported by Microsoft and will not be patched at all) we recommend not using Internet Explorer but use a more secure web browser, such as Firefox or Chrome, for all non-Harvard web sites.
Please contact the Helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org or 617.432.4357) with any questions or concerns.
Director, Information Technology
