Cyber Threats Increase
During Holiday Weekend

Traditionally, hackers take advantage of long weekends to stage attacks, particularly on systems running UNIX, including Linux. The Computer Protection Program (CPP) urges all employees to: examine your logs and find out who's been logging into your system; see what processes are running; keep current with patching; disable unused accounts; register your account in the NETS database; and shut down your system, if possible. In case of emergency, contact CPP staff.
