    The Issue

    Recently, we have received a number of phishing (fishing) attempts targeted at our community.  The phishing attempts have been hosted on a provider called webs.com.  A number of these attacks have been successful.  As a result, we have had the attacker send tens of thousands of spam messages from our system to other internet addresses.  We cannot let that continue because it will lead to blocks on messages from our address by the spam filters at other organizations.  In order to minimize the threat to you, we are, as of today, quarantining all email messages with links to webs.com.

    By Dr. Philip Baczewski, Senior Director of Academic Computing and User Services and Deputy Chief Information Officer for University Information Technology

Specifically, the requirement to accept an End User License Agreement (EULA) from Dropbox.com prevented IT support staff from installing the Dropbox.com client on University-owned computers.

    Social Science

    By Claudia Lynch, Benchmarks Online Editor with extensive input from Dr. Jesse Hamner, Manager, Research and Visualization Environment (RAVE)

    UNT research was on display on June 8th and June 21st, first at UNT on the Square, and then at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, as part of their "Social Science" series. These events -- where UNT was the only exhibitor -- all had the theme of "relationships", where the individual exhibitors were selected based on their interpretation of research on any relationship. In addition to psychology research, UNT sent people who study epidemiology, DNA, engineering, robotics, art, and political science.
