Update Nov 18: Blocking of some email attachments removed
A so-called "ransomware" has affected several organizations in Sweden. Therefore, attachments in e-mail messages such as older Excel files (.xls) and Zip archives (.zip) are temporarily blocked while the security risk and necessary measures are examined.
Update 18 Nov: The files that were previously blocked are now let through again. Uppsala University has not been affected by the vulnerability that the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) warned about yesterday.
If you need to share files or documents with your colleagues, you can use Sunet Box.
Pay close attention to all types of email attachments, especially those listed above, and preferably do not open any suspicious attachments at all. If you are at all suspicious of an e-mail and/or attachment, please contact IT Service Desk via email@example.com.
