Email Delivery Issue October 29th: Email Delivery Issue October 29th
The University of Arizona has received an increased number of phishing emails over the past several days, which has caused significant disruption on campus. In an effort to respond quickly and block malicious emails, UITS applied increased email filtering that inadvertently blocked legitimate mail on October 29th between 3:07 and 4:47pm. Any email caught by this filter cannot be recovered. We do have a list of all senders (including non-UA senders) impacted by this problem and will be sending a targeted message to anyone impacted during this period of time so they will have an opportunity to resend the mail.
This situation may also have impacted automated mail from services (such as we saw with UA Service). We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused. If you have any questions please reach out to ISO at firstname.lastname@example.org or to me directly.

RANSOMWARE ALERT: Today, Flagstaff Unified School District cancelled classes at all of its schools due to what it is calling a “ransomware attack.” This is only the latest in what appears to be a string of malware attacks focusing on SLTT. This summer DHS released a report indicting it had observed an uptick in ransomware targeting State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial entities, and 22 towns in Texas were hit in what may have been a coordinated attack.
Please help communicate the following to our UA community:
1. Back up all important data to at least 2 different places.
2. Keep software up to date and systems/devices patched.
3. Use email cautiously, especially when opening unsolicited attachments.
