NEW E-MAIL VIRUS LOOKS LIKE UNI SECURITY E-MAIL:
UNI e-mail users may have recently received a number of phishing scam e-mails, such as the one below.
Delete the e-mail, DO NOT click on the link.
"According to our site policy you will have to confirm your account by the following link or else your account will be suspended within 24 hours for security reasons.
Thank you for your attention to this question. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Sincerely,Uni Security Department Assistant."
The link in the e-mail appears to lead to a UNI site, but in reality leads to a rogue Web site that immediately infects your computer with an sdbot variant, which requires reformatting and reinstallation.
For an unknown reason, the WRC cooling system is not operating. WRC offices and recreational areas are open and classes are meeting as scheduled. While Facilities Services and McLeod Center contractors work to resolve the problem, Health Beat hours in Maucker Union are being expanded:
M - F 6:30 - 8:30 a.m.
Mon and Thurs: 11:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Tues and Wed.: 11:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m.
Fri: 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
As soon as the WRC cooling system is operational, an announcement will be posted on the WRS InfoLine, 3-2391, Line #2.
UNI IN THE NEWS:
Don Briggs, instructor, HPELS, and Andy Martin, Outdoor Rec coordinator and UNI student Andy Rowland, are featured in a Courier story about their adventures in Nepal.
Below is a link to a story picked up by the AP Wire on funding for NABIL.
