IMPORTANT: The Heartbleed bug and Flinders - what you need to do
by Flinders University - Thursday, 17 April 2014, 10:39 AM
 

The University has investigated the impact of the 'Heartbleed' bug that has been in the news recently and found that some systems were affected by the bug. Steps have been taken to resolve the situation which is now under control.

There is a small (but serious) possibility that your login and password details may have been exposed during the time the bug was impacting, which may result in your password being known and used illegally.

You are strongly advised to change your FAN password and use the new password from now on.

Note that you only need to change your password once and all Flinders systems will use the new password.

If you receive any unusual emails requesting that you reset your password via a link please delete the email.

Director, Information Technology Services
