IE Exploit Requires 5pm Maintenance 4/30/14

Microsoft announced a zero day exploit for Internet Explorer versions 6-11 that takes advantage of a Flash vulnerability. ECS has modified Windows so that if you close and re-open IE after 11:30am 4/30/14, you will be protected from that exploit. To ensure that all managed computers are protected, ECS will close all open IE sessions at 5pm on Wednesday, 4/30/14. Please close IE before that time.

For personally administered Windows computers, run Windows update because Microsoft put out a patch for the IE exploit on 5/1/14.
