Internet Explorer End of Life – Update Required

Dear Colleagues and Students,

As of January 12, 2016, Microsoft stopped supporting Internet Explorer versions 7, 8, 9 and 10 on most operating systems. To keep your computer and transactions safe, and to protect yourself and the University, you must download Internet Explorer 11 via the following link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/internet-explorer/download-ie.

The following are Microsoft-supported operating systems and supported Internet Explorer versions:

Windows Desktop Operating Systems Internet Explorer Version
Windows 7 SP1 Internet Explorer 11
Windows 8.1 Update Internet Explorer 11
Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11 and Edge

The end of life notices for Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9 and 10 means that these versions won’t receive any more security updates or other patches. If you are still using these browsers, you may be vulnerable to security threats and even hacks, depending on what other (if any) security software you have installed.

Also, be wary of popups from browsers asking you to update Internet Explorer, as these messages may be attempts to install malicious software on your machine. Only trust legitimate downloads and installations, which are accessed from the link provided, above.
