5/18/2008 15:07   PHISHING SCAM HITTING CAMPUS EMAIL ADDRESSES

Beginning Thursday, May 15, the University of Arkansas campus began receiving fraudulent email messages directed to campus accounts. The messages look like they are coming from University administration and have a subject line of "Confirm Your Email Address." The attacker attempts to persuade unsuspecting users to give their passwords.  University IT Services reminds users they will NEVER send a message like this.

Users are urged to ignore the message, or any similar fraudulent  message. However, users that may have replied to the email message should immediately change their password by going to  www.uark.edu/passweb to prevent unauthorized access to their account.

University IT Services WILL NOT (and has never) sent messages requesting user account passwords or other personal information to be communicated via email.

For more information, please refer to http://uits.uark.edu/accountpurge.htm. Should users need further assistance or have questions, please contact the UITS Help Desk at 575-2905.

3/27/2008 15:14   Recent Campus Outages

Late in the evening of Monday, March 24th, University IT Services began experiencing intermittent Internet connectivity issues with the primary production host network within the Data Center. The issue created problems accessing such systems as ISIS, email, My Docs, and production web services, among others. Once the issue began, it got progressively worse. Network engineer staff worked throughout the early morning hours to troubleshoot, isolate, and resolve the problems as quickly as possible and services were restored to their normal capacity.

Last night (March 26), beginning around 11:30 pm, the generators in ADSB (where University IT Services is located) failed. Power was restored, however, and all systems should be back up and running. If anyone is experiencing problems, please contact the UITS Help Desk at 575-2901.

The issues experienced on Monday/Tuesday and Wednesday/Thursday were totally independent events and had independent source causes. University IT Services apologizes for any inconvenience these outages may have caused and is working diligently to resolve all of these issues.

3/6/2008 10:31   Campus Wireless Network Outages
A number of intermittent outages in the log in system to use the University public wireless network have been occurring. University IT Services is working on a resolution to this problem, but outages are expected to continue intermittently throughout the day (March 6).
Once the problems are resolved, users will be required to log in as usual (using a web browser), though the log in screens will look different. Users should still login with their UARK Username and password (the same login required for email).
For questions, comments or concerns, please contact the University IT Help Desk at 575-2901.

2/21/2008 16:00   Fraudulent Email Sent to UA Campus Users

On February 21, 2008, hackers have once again attempted to fool University of Arkansas account holders through an email scam. This attack purports to originate from the administrator of uark.edu accounts, and claims that individual accounts will be removed if the message is not responded to.
As with the December 2007 incident, this message is completely fraudulent and should be ignored by all uark.edu account holders. University IT Services (formerly Computing Services) is taking steps to filter these messages.

However, users that may have replied to the email message should immediately change their password using PASSweb (http://www.uark.edu/passweb) to prevent unauthorized access to their account.

Additionally, University IT Services WILL NOT send messages requesting user account passwords or other personal information to be communicated via email.
For questions, comments, or concerns, please contact the UITS Help Desk at 575-2901 or email the IT Security Group at security@uark.edu.
