Has Your Site been Hacked?

October 13th, 2014 by Erick Beck

Imagine you come into your office and sit down at your desk to start your day.  You log into your computer and visit your departmental website…and to your horror you see that the front page has been hijacked and it is now selling Cialis or streaming the latest pirated movie.  You have been hacked!  Would you know what to do?  That question was recently asked in two different groups that I have been in, both of which were filled with people who should have known.  Most didn’t.

Come join us at the next uWeb meeting, where the CIS security team will be talking about exploits on campus.  They will show a few examples of what has been reported on campus, some of the most common platforms that get exploited and how to prevent them, and advice on what to do if it does happen to you.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday October 28 at 3:30 rescheduled for Tuesday December 9 at 3:00  in Room 2605 of the GSC.  The presentation will be broadcast on TTVN Channel 9 6 and will be recorded for later viewing on MediaMatrix..
