Protect passwords

UIC students and faculty members should change some of their passwords after certain UIC servers were impacted by the Heartbleed software vulnerability.

ACCC Security found that a small number of network servers were running a vulnerable version of the software that could allow an attacker to contact a web server and look into its memory without being detected. The vulnerability could compromise a client’s username and password.

Passwords should be changed for Google Apps accounts, YouTube if the log-in information matches your netid and password, and Box accounts if the password used is the same as the UIC common password.
