Update Symantec Endpoint Protection to address security vulnerabilities

Symantec issued an advisory of multiple security vulnerabilities across various product lines including Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) client software, the anti-virus software required for all Case Western Reserve faculty and staff.

In response, CWRU released the updated Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.6 MP5 anti-virus in the Software Center for Windows and Linux.

Install this updated SEP version as soon as possible.

Mac OS X users with a 12.1 version of SEP installed should run LiveUpdate to update to 12.1.6 MP4 (there is no MP5 for Mac).

If you need assistance with this, email the University Technology Care Center at or call 216.368.HELP (4357).
