McGill-managed desktop and laptop Windows computers will receive an important security update beginning on October 31, 2022. Cisco Secure Endpoint, McGill’s antivirus software, will receive its regularly scheduled, monthly update. The process to update all affected machines will take approximately 2 weeks.

Please be advised that if you are using a Windows computer, you will see several messages during the update to version 8.0.1 of Cisco Secure Endpoint for Windows (see accompanying images). No action is required, and you may simply close the final message (dialog box) once the installation is complete.
