Users Should Allow Update to Adobe Flash Player

On February 7, Adobe announced that an update to Flash Player is critical to ward off potential hacking attacks. Hackers are sending malware to both Windows and Macintosh computers via websites that use Flash content. In addition, some users may receive bogus emails that encourage them to open a Microsoft Word® attachment that contains a virus or malware.

Beginning February 11, individuals who have a SLA agreement with University Technology Services (UTS) will receive the update to Flash Player. It is important that all users install the update immediately, rather than postponing it for a later date.

To find out if you have an SLA with UTS, contact your division's technology contact. The update can be downloaded directly at http://www.adobe.com/support/flash/downloads.html.  

If you have any questions, please contact the UTS Service Desk at (803) 777-1800, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., or via email at servicedesk@sc.edu.
