UO Information Services Heartbleed FAQ

Earlier Announcement:
Between 12:00pm (noon) on Thursday, April 10 and 11:59pm on Sunday, April 13, you may experience short service outages due to updates that must be installed. Most of this work will not cause outages. However, short service outages are possible.

Examples of a “technology service” are webmail and Blackboard.

Information Services is working to mitigate an Internet-wide security problem announced late on Monday, April 7. Due to the large number of services we are working with, we cannot at this time list all affected services.

You may receive more specific information about when a specific service will be restarted. That information supersedes this message.

For those of you who are technical, we are remediating the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability. With certificate providers very busy, we will need to restart services as replacement certificates become available over the next four days.

If you have questions, please contact the Technology Service Desk at techdesk@uoregon.edu or 541-346-HELP.
