Those reports will now receive a faster response, thanks to a new tool that will automatically scan reported email messages and send an automated response back indicating  whether the reported email is legitimate, spam or a threat. The automated response will only be sent to UT System employees who make the report using the PAB. If your Outlook desktop app does not have the PAB, contact the Help Desk.

A vulnerability affecting the Microsoft Windows print spooler, which helps your computer interact with printers and orders the print jobs in your queue, was reported July 1. The vulnerability could potentially have allowed attackers to remotely execute code with system-level privileges, so printing to the network printer fleet in the UT System Building was disabled at that time. Microsoft issued a security patch to address the vulnerability on July 7. After working through the night to install the update, OTIS was able to restore printing in the UT System Building.
