August Critical Windows Security Patches
August 15, 2008
Microsoft released new patches for critical Windows and Microsoft Office vulnerabilities on August 12, 2008.
* All Windows PCs must be patched. *
To patch your PC:
Click on the update icon on the taskbar (it is a globe or yellow shield with an exclamation point, depending on which version of Windows you're running).
If you do not have such an icon, run Windows Update by going to the site:http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com
All Office 2000 users should also go to the site:http://officeupdate.microsoft.com
Mac Office update instructions:
If you are using Microsoft Office 2004 or Office 2008 on a Mac, use Microsoft AutoUpdate for Mac, which comes with Office, to check for updates or visit the Mac Office download page to get the latest updates:http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloads.mspx
If you will be manually installing updates, check the "system requirements" section on the download page to make sure that previous required updates have been installed.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the SCS Help Desk (x8-4231) if you have questions or problems with applying these patches.
Thank you for your attention,
