UW Information Technology is aware of a problem with the network that began at approximately 6:30 pm on 05/18/2015. UW Information Technology engineers are investigating. There is currently no estimate for when the problem will be resolved. We will update this notice as information becomes available.
Information sent to the eOutage mailing list is also posted online:
The Bloedel 253 copier has been repaired and is again working.
We are aware of an outage of services provided from the 4545 datacenter. We are currently investigating the extent and working to restore services ASAP.
A security risk has been found. Please update your Lenovo software ASAP to resolve the issue.
Anyone with a Lenovo computer that runs the Lenovo System Update service that comes with the device should update to the latest version if connected to a trusted network, or manually update. Version 126.96.36.199 and earlier allow MiTM attacks that can replace Lenovo applications with malware, and also allow privilege escalation. A link to manually download the update is available at the Lenovo support page listed below.
The patch was released in April, but the researchers’ findings were only made public this week. If you received your laptop April or later your laptop has been patched. If you want you can bring your Lenovo laptop to BLD156 to be updated.
Xerox has been contacted.
If needing color prints please use wfs020-copier or
and115-Canon. I will let you know when the copier has been repaired.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
