The VUB/ULB has a site-license for the McAfee anti-virus products for Windows and Apple computers so that every member of personnel and students having a studentroom from the VUB/ULB can download and install this software to protect their computer from viruses.

Because of the higher grade of protection one gets with this software, we strongly suggest to install this software on all computers that are connected to the university's computer network.

All information and download instructions are available on the softweb website

All details about affected products and delaying Windows updates can be found on
