Wednesday 10/18 9:30 a.m. update:  The vendor has not yet released the appropriate patches, but expects to do so on Friday. If the updates are released as expected, Information Technology will apply the updates over the weekend.

With recent news of the KRACK wireless vulnerability (see https://www.wired.com/story/krack-wi-fi-wpa2-vulnerability/ for more information,) Information Technology will be performing maintenance on the campus wireless network on Monday (10/16/17) evening in order to re mediate the recently identified vulnerabilities. During this timeframe, campus wireless access points will be unavailable for approximately 5 to 10 minutes as the devices are updated. 

On the wireless client side, University owned computers will be patched automatically by IT. Additionally, IT strongly recommends ensuring that personal devices are updated and patched accordingly as hardware vendors release related updates.

Thank you,

We will be doing emergency maintenance on the production banner servers to patch a critical vulnerability in the OS today between 5PM and 6PM. The database server will be restarted first and brought back up as quickly as possible so that wpconnect can work. The web servers(inb, ssb, degreeworks, ban9) will be restarted after that. 

WPConnect, INB, Degreeworks will all be impacted.
