Some older Autodesk software will stop working on/after June 15, 2019, update available

Are you using Autodesk software that was released between the years 2013-2015 like for example AutoCAD 2016? If so your software might stop working soon unless doing this update.

Transport Layer Security (TLS): Updates Required to Maintain Software Access details:

Issue:
Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0/1.1 is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack that can compromise data exchanges. This applies to single-user subscribers using the software versions listed below; customers using software or versions not listed and customers using perpetual or multi-user (network) licenses will not be affected.
Environment:
This issue affects a selection of Autodesk software used on Windows, Mac, and Linux versions 2014, 2015, 2016 and/or 2017 (Mac only).
If you are using 2018, 2019, or 2020 versions, your software and account are not affected.
Solution:
To align with industry best practices for security and data integrity, Autodesk Identity Services will move to Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 and stop supporting TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 on June 15, 2019.
The best solution to avoid connectivity issues is to download and install a newer version of your software through Autodesk Account or our Autodesk Virtual Agent (AVA).
We have been developing patches to prevent (or resolve) this issue as part of Autodesk’s ongoing efforts to provide the best security possible to our customers. Subscribers using the software versions listed below will need to download the appropriate License & Identity patch by June 15, 2019. These patches will support TLS 1.2 and above.
Failing to apply these patches may result in interrupted software access and connectivity.
