Security Updates and Spam

Security updates
The web world has increasingly become a target for malicious malware and viruses. Open vulnerabilities in operating systems and browsers are just two of the many ways computing devices come under attack. Please perform critical Microsoft or Apple software updates. Also, keep your Anti-virus software up-to-date. Periodically run scans to check for viruses and malware to protect your system from any harm.

Spam
ITS will never ask for confidential information such as usernames and passwords via email. Please do not click or respond to any such emails as these typically are embedded with viruses.

When in doubt please contact the Help desk immediately!
