What happened: Last week, Microsoft announced a critical vulnerability in all supported Windows Server operating systems (2008, 2012). An out-of-band patch was released, reference is MS14-068. This vulnerability could result in the complete compromise of a domain controller. IST has patched all Windows Server computers under its control.
System administrators: Areas on campus that run their own domains need to patch immediately, if they have not already done so.
Update November 24 12:04 pm: The repairs to the PBX were completed Friday evening. Those with IP phones will notice that the call history and redial lists that are displayed on their phones show only calls since Friday/Saturday. This is because those call lists are stored on the PBX components that were replaced on Friday evening. Also, some IP phones may prompt for firmware updates and it is appropriate to select “Yes” to install the latest updates for the phone.
