Symantec Endpoint Protection Upgrade

Many UVic workstations run Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) anti-virus software that protects them from viruses, malware, and malicious activities. A security vulnerability has been discovered in a currently deployed version of SEP, which has necessitated the need to upgrade the SEP client on these workstations.

Windows workstations that are running the managed version of the SEP client and are not joined to the domain will be upgrade automatically by the SEP management server on Monday, September 29. Most workstations in the domain have already been upgraded.

Clients that are running the unmanaged SEP client can download the client update from the University Systems website here:
