Confirming your virus protection

The Department of Computing and Communications advises that as part of our response to increased virus activity clients should confirm their protection by following instructions found here.

As of August 20, 2010 we will be implementing a new tool called Site Advisor which runs in your web browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox only) and is designed to warn about potentially dangerous web sites. Screenshots of what Site Advisor looks like when installed can be found here.

Should you require assistance with or have questions regarding these instructions or any other security related issues please contact the C&C Service Desk at 864-4595 or
