We have been notified that Network Nebraska – NWU’s Internet Service Provider (ISP) – has a network maintenance operation scheduled for Sunday, 7/12, between 8:00am and 2:00pm. It is possible that we will experience some interruption of our Internet services during this window, but any interruptions are expected to be brief.
We have been informed by Unite Private Networks (UPN) that they have scheduled a maintenance operation for the fiber circuit connecting our Lincoln and Omaha locations. They do not expect that the maintenance will cause any interruption to service, however. This alert is just a precaution in the event that you note any unusual behavior following their operations.
Wireless network changes planned for the Spring Break.
CSIT will be making some changes to the University’s wireless networks over the course of the coming Spring Break. We wanted to let you know what you’ll find when you return to campus. Here is what will change:
SECURITY ALERT:Widespread phishing scam message from several compromised NWU accounts.
CSIT has received many reports this morning of a wave of phishing scam messages reaching NWU mailboxes. The widespread nature of the attack suggests that an alert to NWU account holders is appropriate.
CSIT has received many reports of a phishing scam targeting NWU Office 365 account information. This particular phishing scam is a variation on a design we have seen and warned about previously, but the widespread distribution of the scam makes it worth a reminder.
SECUIRTY ALERT: Probable email scam originating from compromised NWU account
CSIT has reports this morning that new instances of a likely scam have been received in many NWU mailboxes. This potential scam originates from a compromised NWU accounts and, therefore, may seem superficially to be more trustworthy than they might otherwise.
