Don't Open That Attachment!
Over the past several days, UAlbany has been the target of attacks that encrypt the files on your computer, rendering them inaccessible. Most of these come in the form of email attachments, which often look very real. Don't be fooled! Be careful handling any email attachments from unsolicited sources, and refrain from opening any zip files unless you have confirmed their authenticity directly from the source. For recent sample of malicious email messages, visit our Catch of the Day page.
Are You Using OneDrive for Business?
All students, faculty and staff have access to OneDrive for Business, your own personal document library for storing, organizing and sharing your files. Similar to DropBox, this ITS-supported service provides 1 TB of space and can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection. If your files include institutional information, please be sure you are familiar with our Data Classification and Category | Storage Standards.
