Cybersecurity – TIP of the Week – Update your browser extensions and plugins


Old browser plugins may have security vulnerabilities. Update regularly to protect your computer. For your UTHSC windows device, connect it to the VPN over the weekend to get updates. MACs are updated through the cloud. But don’t forget about your personal devices! Browser plugins, such as Flash, Java, and Acrobat, may become out of date and represent a security risk.

Update them on a regular basis or set them to update themselves automatically to ensure your computer is protected. Make sure to restart after updating.

A simple Google search will give direction on how to update whichever browser you use. Make sure you update all the browsers on your device.

Stay safe and continue to #BeCyberSmart
