Due to a recently published set of security vulnerabilities, UMBC’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) website at umbc.edu/faq is no longer accessible outside of UMBC. DoIT is going to keep this restriction in place for the remainder of the week while we work to upgrade the software so that it is no longer vulnerable to these attacks.
The campus community can continue to access the FAQs while on campus, or off-campus through the Virtual Private Network (VPN) or Virtual Desktop Environment (VDE). There will be some downtimes needed later in the week to upgrade the services, and we will post those when we have more details available.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, and we appreciate your patience as we work to keep our systems safe and secure.
