Urgent Zoom Patch for Macs
CIT has issued an alert about a high-severity vulnerability in the Zoom Meeting App for macOS. Mac users should check that their version of Zoom is listed as 5.11.5 or higher. Please also make sure that Zoom is installed in user space (see UserSpacePkgInstalls
) so it can be updated automatically without administrative privileges. For more information, please see https://itservicealerts.hosting.cornell.edu/view/6718
Urgent macOS Patch
Last Friday, Apple published important updates to macOS devices to address a zero-day vulnerability. CLASSE-managed Macs will automatically update themselves to macOS 12.5.1, but please note that you may be prompted to type in your login password before the installation can proceed. Users should also ensure that their personal Macs are updated to macOS 12.5.1. To check if your Mac is updated, navigate to the Apple Logo > About This Mac -- if your device is listed as 12.5.1 or higher, you are protected. An announcement
will also appear on CLASSE-managed Mac desktops as a reminder. For more information, please see https://itservicealerts.hosting.cornell.edu/view/6726
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
