ITS LAUNCHING NEW WIRELESS ACCESS PILOT
Information Technology Services (ITS) is launching a new wireless access network pilot with an additional layer of security. Effective Aug. 14, uofm-secure will provide wireless users enhanced security for passwords and protection of University data. ITS welcomes your participation and cooperation in helping to keep both you and the University more secure with improved encryption. Existing UofM and uofm-guest wireless networks remain in place while the new uofm-secure network is tested. The need for two older networks will be addressed during the fall semester. To learn more visit our uofm-secure wireless page.
Dear Campus Community:
Information Technology Services (ITS) has monitored an increase in fraudulent phishing email attempts over the last several hours. The text of the phishing emails varies, but typically asks you to verify your account at a non-UofM website within 24 hours or your account will be suspended or deactivated. These emails are fraudulent – ITS has not asked you to click a link to verify your account, increase your mailbox quota or upgrade your mailbox.
If you receive any email message that has a suspicious link or asks you for account details such as your username and password, you can report the message to ITS staff via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or over the phone by calling the ITS Service Desk at (901) 678-8888. If you mistakenly provide your account details via email or to a non-UofM website, please contact the ITS Service Desk for further assistance.
