Last month, we tried to contact you because our records show you have a version of Autodesk software that may be vulnerable to data exchange compromise. Certain older versions of Autodesk software on Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems are using Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0/1.1 protocols; most versions 2018-2020 are not affected. For customers using Revit cloud-connected features, Revit Cloud Worksharing, and Cloud Models for Revit, additional updates may be necessary.*
We have heard concerns about how long it would take to make the necessary system updates.
After careful consideration, we have revised the date for the TLS 1.0/1.1 deprecation to August 3, 2019, to ensure our customers have the time required to successfully adopt the patches without disrupting their work.
To ensure your security and connectivity, you’ll find patches for most affected products on the Autodesk Knowledge Network. If you’re using a software version listed, we urge you to address the issue by August 3, 2019 so you don’t lose software access or connectivity; if applied after August 3, the available patches should still resolve the issue.
Although the updates are not required until August 3, we highly recommend installing them as soon as possible.
At Autodesk, we are fully committed to your security and success.
