Enhancements to WSU's Intrusion Prevention System
On the morning of Tuesday, October 28, CaTS will be implementing enhancements to the Wright State's Intrusion Prevention System. These enhancements provide additional protection to the University with a more extensive library of known infected Internet sites and the ability to spot infected content. If you have questions concerning these enhancements please contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827.
Warning About Attached Documents With Malicious Code
CaTS recently learned of malicious Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents being sent via email to members of the Wright State community.
The names of these documents may contain references to an invoice, undelivered package, or other business related subject. The documents are designed to run malicious code on systems running the Windows operating system. If you receive an email with a document attached and do not recognize the sender, even if the email indicates the document originates from a legitimate business, do not open or download the document.
If you have questions about whether an email you received is legitimate or not, please contact the Help Desk for assistance. You can contact us at (937) 775-4827 or toll free at 1-888-775-4827.

Information on 10/17/14 Network Outage
On Friday, 10/17/14, at approximately 9:04 a.m., the Wright State network experienced a brief slowdown that lasted around 15 minutes. Our records indicate the network was under a denial of service (DoS) attack designed to overwhelm and slow down the network. At approximately 11:00am, CaTS implemented its first measure to protect the campus from such attacks. If you have questions please call the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827.
