All computers currently running the UBC IT provided Sophos Antivirus will be automatically upgraded to the latest versions. A reboot of your computer after the upgrade may be necessary.

Note that due to high server loads, your installation of Sophos may fail to download updates but your computer will continue to be protected with existing virus definitions. Your Sophos installation will try updating every 2 hours until it succeeds.

Please contact the UBC IT Service Centre for assistance if you encounter issues with the automatic upgrade of your Sophos installation.
