To all Members of the Carleton Community,

Information Technology Services has reviewed our network to ensure that Carleton is protected from the type of international cyber-attack that spread across 150 countries over the weekend. There have been no known compromises to Carleton’s network or systems.

The scope of the recent attack reinforces the need to remain vigilant of phishing attempts and to ensure that your PC has the latest security updates.  To ensure that your Windows PC is up to date with the latest Microsoft Windows updates please follow the steps outlined on the Information Technology Services website.

It is recommended that work be saved prior to patch application to safeguard against any data loss.

For any questions, please contact the ITS Service Desk at 613-520-2600 ext. 3700 or
