Late in the week of February18th, the ITS department was notified of malware that had been installed in many of the computer labs.
The malware was investigated and found to be a crypto currency miner that had been installed via unauthorized access to the lab machines. After analysis, we do not believe any risk was posed to other accounts or users.
The malware has since been removed, and we are in the process of re-imaging the labs to be on the safe side.
The method by which the attacker gained access has been closed and ITS is working to ensure this does not happen in the future.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.
