Support Ended for Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10

Posted on by tzuchinc

Microsoft has ended support for Internet Explorer (IE) versions 8, 9, and 10 as of January 12, 2016. This means that Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for those versions of IE, making them increasingly vulnerable to malware and exploitation by malicious users.

ITS recommends that users of IE 8, 9, or 10 upgrade to a newer web browser, such as IE 11 or Microsoft Edge (available with Windows 10), in order to continue receiving software updates from Microsoft, including security and compatibility fixes.

Older versions of software are generally less secure than newer releases. This is especially true for web browsers. Please take this opportunity to verify that you are using the latest version of your web browser.

For more information, see Microsoft’s end of support page for older versions of Internet Explorer.
