ITS is relaying to our campus customers an Alert from the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team about Quicktime on Windows.
Apple has “deprecated” the Quicktime program and is calling for computer users to uninstall the program. Since this is a security risk, ITS has removed Quicktime on campus computers and replaced it with the VLC program which has been identified as a proper replacement. Many computers on campus already have VLC installed. Adobe is working on some patching of their products which may still depend on Quicktime. Please let us know if you run into any troubles with programs you use here on campus, by contacting the helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org) or creating a helpdesk ticket.
Thank you for your part in keeping our campus safe and secure.

This Friday November 6, 2015 from 6:30-8:30am – ITS will be updating a software license server (KeyServer). The only software that will be offline during this time is the Final Draft software. We hope this will not cause any inconvenience and that those using the software can build this downtime into their plans. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have concerns.
As of 5:00 pm, we are experiencing a network/internet connectivity outage in Bowker Barn & Brackett House. Network staff are looking into the issue.
Update: This looks to be a fiber break and those buildings will be offline until Wednesday morning when the proper resources can be called in.
