UCalgary still recovering from weekend malware attack

June 1, 2016

The University of Calgary has stated that a malware attack was responsible for a disruption to its IT systems last weekend. Global News reports that issues with the network began on Saturday, at which point the school warned students and staff not to use UCalgary-issued computers. While the school’s secure wireless network and email are safe again for general use, the university reportedly told Global that it would take until Thursday to get everything back to normal. “We understand the significant impact these systems issues are having across the campus community,” said UCalgary VP Finance and Services Linda Dalgetty. “Teams have been working throughout the weekend to try to resolve this challenging situation as quickly as possible.” Global News
