What you can do! 

Vulnerable computers place MSU's information at risk.  Your computer is the first line of defense to protect all of us. Keep it safe by always doing these things:

  • Install and use antivirus software, even on Macs! 

    McAfee antivirus software is free for all MSU-owned and student computers. 

  • Be suspicious of email attachments.

  • Update add-on applications like Java and Flash.

  • Apply operating system patches immediately!
