IST is activating an email security product for Exchange/Connect called Proofpoint on February 28. Inbound email with suspicious contents (e.g. spam, phishing) will be placed in a quarantine for you to examine. Details are on IST's web site.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to recently reported vulnerabilities IST strongly recommends uninstalling Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) on all home or non-managed computers as soon as possible. SEP support at the University of Waterloo has ended. A list of recommended alternative anti-virus products is available at https://uwaterloo.ca/ist/endpoint-protection-product-recommendations.
The Math/CS NetApp cluster is having an OS update. As with previous updates, clients should not notice any impact. The NetApp cluster provides the primary storage used by both teaching and research computing environments in both Math and CS.
