Campus Notices

Internet Access for Windows XP will be blocked May 2nd

Campus community please note.

On Friday May 2nd internet access for Windows XP computer systems will be blocked.

We are sorry for any inconvenience, unfortunately Microsoft no longer supports the Windows XP operating system with security and vulnerability patches. The Office of the Chief Information Officer for the State of Washington has identified this as a significant vulnerability to our State information infrastructure. We at the CWU Information Services Department are doing everything we can to protect the University infrastructure from this vulnerability and that includes blocking internet access for Windows XP computers.

If you, or an associate are impacted by this on a CWU computer please contact the Helpdesk at (509)963-1581 and we will do our best to upgrade the affected system to a supported platform.
