Security Incident - Services Disabled

Central Web Services web servers were subject to an attack this weekend.  Due to this,  a number of services have been temporarily disabled to CWS sites, including ssh and ftp access.  Personnel are currently working to clean up this incident.  Central Web Services hosts oregonstate.edu and many other sites in the oregonstate.edu domain.

For users accessing a web page, you may receive a message that states something similar to:  "Warning:  Visiting this site may harm your computer...site contains malware"
If you see this visiting oregonstate.edu (the Home Page), the calendar, or the campus map the issue is resolved.  If you see this message elsewhere, please open a help ticket

If you see a site that contains a frame and a link, do not click on the link.  If you are unsure, do not click, but proceed to open a help ticket and provide as much information so we can investigate, including the url of the page that you were viewing.

Work is ongoing, and services will be restored as soon as possible.  The best way to contact us with issues right now is to use the help ticket.
