Additional Internet browsers to be deployed to workstations

As previously announced, a vulnerability in Internet Explorer was exposed, and staff were advised to use an alternate web browser.

In response to the vulnerability, workstations were patched right away, and now Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be deployed to workstations to allow staff multiple browser options.

The deployment of Chrome and Firefox to workstations (that do not already have it) has been scheduled during the maintenance window on Tuesday (June 10). Laptops not connected to the campus network that night will install them the next time they are connected.

Questions may be directed to ITaP Customer Service at (765) 494-4000.
