Vulnerability in iOS (and maybe MacOS)
Last Friday, Apple released a critical update to iOS 6 and iOS 7 to fix a major security flaw that allows for eavesdropping of supposedly secure transmissions. We encourage everyone to update their iPhones, iPads, and iPods to iOS 7.0.6 or 6.1.6, preferably using a secure network (such as RedRover-Secure or eduroam).
Macs running OS X 10.9 may also be vulnerable, although Apple has not yet released an OS X update.

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter
and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L
, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.
Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM
, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations
