Printing at UT System Restored

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.

Contact the Help Desk if you experience any issues with the network printers.
