The problem

A major security vulnerability named the Heartbleed Bug was disclosed Monday night. This bug allows nefarious individuals to steal the private keys protecting information on websites using SSL security (sites that begin with https). Once the attacker has the private key for a website, the bug can scrape a server's memory, where sensitive user data is stored including usernames, passwords, and credit card numbers.

Several Miami students and staff members have reported receiving an email that appears to be from the Miami "ITS-Support Center" and asks recipients to reply with their user name, password, and date of birth. Please be aware that this message is a hoax and a phishing scam. IT Services will never ask for your password, social security number, bank account number, or other sensitive personal information via email

MyCard will experience a brief service disruption on Tuesday morning, April 1st at 3:00 am to move its location on the Miami network. The outage is not expected to last more than 10 minutes.
