New Zoom Minimum Version 10/25

To address a security vulnerability, on October 24th, 2023 L&C’s Zoom instance will be set to a new minimum version requirement for all clients. Mac and Windows workstations need to update to Zoom 5.16.2 in order to continue joining and hosting meetings. Out of date Zoom applications will not be able to join L&C hosted meetings.

Starting at 8am on October 24th, 2023 upon launching Zoom, you may be prompted to update the application. Mac or Windows Zoom clients will be required to be version 5.16.2 or higher in order to continue joining and hosting meetings.

This latest update ensures a uniform experience with the latest features, security patches, and bug fixes. As a reminder, it is best practice to enable auto update under Zoom settings and allow it to get the latest version automatically.

To minimize disruptions to your meetings, it is generally good practice to launch and update your client at least 5 minutes prior to starting any meeting. You can update through the Zoom application or by visiting our manual Zoom Upgrade Instructions. Campus managed devices, such as classroom computers, will be updated by IT prior to this change. We thank you for your cooperation.

For additional questions or assistance in regards to Zoom updates, please reach out to the IT Service Desk by stopping at our Service Desk in Watzek Library or emailing itservice@lclark.edu. Law school members may also contact lawitservice@lclark.edu.
