Residence halls' computer network affected by virus

A malicious virus has been introduced to the residence halls' computer network.

As a precaution, do not click on any message that tells you that your Internet browser is out of date. By clicking on the message, several computers were infected with a virus named "Net-Worm.Win32.Rorpian."

This attack was isolated to the residence halls' wired and wireless connections. It does not appear to have spread to the campus at large.

If your computer is infected and your port is shut down, do not try to reconnect it to the network with another port.

UA's Information Technology department is scanning the residence halls' network to identify infected computers.

If you are affected, residence hall advisors will have CDs with a removal tool that can eliminate the virus. Once the computer has been scanned, you should notify the Support Center that the scan is complete, and your port will be turned back on. This might take up to an hour.

Alternatively, you can take the computer to either the Computer Center (show on map) or Bierce Library's Media Tech Support (located in the Learning Commons) to have it checked.

If you have an infected computer or have questions or concerns, contact the Support Center at 330-972-6888.

The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.
