Linux Adobe Flash Plugin Security Update

We have scheduled the security update of the Adobe Flash Plugin (flash-plugin-11.2.202.425-release.x86_64) for Tuesday's (13-Jan-2015) weekly linux package update. This update will address any warnings you may have seen about insecure versions of Flash under Linux.

The Windows version of Flash will not be updated.

W210_xrx_5550 printer will be moving across the hall to W207

We have scheduled the move of the w210 printer from its current location to W207, on top of the filing cabinets, to take place on Tuesday, January 13th.



General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
