Discontinue use of Internet Explorer Until Further Notice


Contributed by Kris Monroe

On April 29, 2014 the U.S. Department of Homeland Security recommended that all users temporarily discontinue the use of Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) due to a critical security flaw.

While we have some protections in place, Ithaca College ITS Information Security recommends that all members of the College community use another browser, such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, until a fix has been issued for IE.

If Ithaca College internal sites require the use of IE, please limit use to just those specific sites. For more information about this flaw, please Microsoft Security Advisory 2963983 here
