Download Critical Windows Update

IMPORTANT MICROSOFT WINDOWS PATCH IS AVAILABLE

PLEASE TAKE ACTION

Microsoft has released a patch that resolves a critical vulnerability in Windows XP, 2000 and 2003. This patch release is out of their normal cycle which indicates they believe there is potential for wormlike exploitation.

Most Vet Med machines get patched automatically and will only need a reboot. Look in the system tray (lower right portion of your desktop) for a yellow shield. This indicates patches have been installed. Click on the shield and follow the instruction to restart your computer.

If you don't see the shield, you can go directly to the Microsoft Update website at http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate and choose the EXPRESS update button.

Our servers will be updated this evening. They will be offline briefly at 9:00 PM tonight.

Information on this patch can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/Bulletin/MS08-067.mspx

Thank you for your attention to this.
