Windows XP updates have ended - No XP on campus networks as of June 1

Printer-friendly version

If you're still using Windows XP, your last security update took place on April 8th. Your computer is now unprotected against any new security threats that come along. And that means we can no longer allow computers running XP to connect to either the wired or the wireless networks at HSU. As of June 1, XP devices will be blocked from campus networks.

All HSU-owned computers have been upgraded to a newer operating system, and you should strongly consider doing the same for any personal systems you have that are still running XP. It simply is not worth the risk.

While HSU's Technology Help Desk cannot upgrade your personally owned computer, they can direct you to a local service facility.
