Please use this link to check for valid certificates and reinstall certificates if it reports problems. If you continue to have problems, copy/paste the results of this check into a helpdesk request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The recently announced "Heartbleed" security vulnerability probably indirectly or directly affects everybody at CSAIL. We have a wiki page about it which explains the situation and helps you figure out if you need to change any of your CSAIL passwords. (Almost everybody will need to change non-CSAIL passwords, since the vulnerability is very widespread and has existed for a couple of years.)
- Email scams ask for your password TIG will never ask for passwords! Institute policy forbids giving your password to anyone, even your system administrators and trusted colleagues.
