NEWS 

DO I HAVE A VIRUS OR NOT?: UNI faculty, staff and students may have recently received e-mails with attachments containing a virus that appear to be from the UNI Online or MyUNIverseNewsEditor@uni.edu accounts, making them appear to be legitimate correspondence. The infected e-mails did not come from UNI Online or MyUNIverse News.

Many viruses often "spoof" e-mail addresses, making them appear to come from someone other that the actual infected computer. The computer used to produce UNI Online and MyUNIverse News is protected and virus-free.

UNI Online and MyUNIverse News never contain attachments. For the most part, they also stick to a strict publishing schedule: UNI Online to faculty and staff on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 4 a.m., and MyUNIverse News to students on Monday mornings at 4 a.m. (Note: MyUNIverse News is only published during the academic year, not during the summer, and UNI Online is Tuesday-only during the summer) Occasionally a special edition of either publication will be sent, but never with an attachment.

As always, never open any attachments from anyone unless you were expecting to receive the attachment from them.

UNI BUDGET UPDATE -- At the February Board of Regents meeting, the three state university presidents made presentations about how their respective institutions are responding to the mid-fiscal-year budget cuts that were announced in October 2003. Some local media reported this discussion as the announcement of another round of budget cuts -- that was incorrect. There is no new information about the budget situation, and no further action has been taken. See "Proposed Fiscal Year 2005 Budget Update" at
http://www.uni.edu/infosys/budget05.shtml
Also at this link is the resolution adopted by the Regents, regarding funding for the three state universities.
