A Ransomware (WannaCry) attack that began on Friday, May 12th targeted Microsoft Windows operating system machines. Ransomware is malicious software that infects the target machine and locks out the owner until a sum of money is paid to the attacker. UTC IT immediately took action by informing the public through various communication sources to insure all systems were secured and patched. Ninety percent of campus computers have been patched and we are continuing to patch all remaining devices. If you have questions, please contact the IT Solutions Center at (423) 425-4000.
