Impact of the change on users:
Starting Monday, June 17, ITS will be removing Adobe Shockwave software from Mason-managed computers. Users will not see any notifications, and the software removal will not require a computer restart.
Note: This change does not affect classroom or lab computers.
Reason for the change:
Adobe Shockwave was discontinued on April 9, 2019, will no longer be supported by Adobe or Information Technology Services (ITS), and is considered end-of-life (EOL). Per the Commonwealth of Virginia’s security standards, Adobe Shockwave must be removed within 90 days of the EOL date. (ID # 177996)
