Grady will be performing updates to the Administrative server next monday morning (January 16) between 7am and 10am. Since these updates require restart of our servers there will be an interruption to the applications that run on these. This will include Colleague, WebAdvisor, Ellucian Go mobile, and Informer. Please plan accordingly.
A Blackboard upgrade that may require 24+ hrs. of downtime has been scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. CST on Wednesday, December 21, with hopes of the process being successfully completed at or before 2:30 p.m. CST on Thursday, December 22. Please plan accordingly.
Yahoo yesterday reported a massive security breach which has compromised aproximately 1 billion user accounts. (Yes, that's BILLION.)
The breach dates back to 2013. Reports are still coming out, but data from Yahoo! user accounts which was lost could included users' names, date of birth, addresses and encrypted account passwords. Yahoo has begun the process of notification of the compromised user accounts (in itself a big job) and has begun forcing users to change their Yahoo account passwords.
