Vulnerability Detected on Campus; IT Services Recommends Immediate Password Change
A vulnerability was detected on the IPFW campus and IT Services is in the process of checking all servers. This vulnerability has the potential to allow attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data, and impersonate services and users.

To ensure the security of your account information, IT Services strongly recommends that all IPFW faculty, staff, and students change their network passwords to a new, strong password immediately. IT Services recommends that you change any password you use on the Internet, as two-thirds of all Internet sites have been impacted.

As a reminder, strong passwords will be longer, include numbers and special characters, and are not easily guessed. We'd recommend first reviewing IPFW password requirements, then checking the strength of your potential new password using Intel's password security center. Any password that returns with a medium or weak password strength should be avoided.

Once you've found your new, strong password, you can update your IPFW password information following these steps. If you run into any troubles updating your password, or if you have any further questions on this, please contact the IT Services Help Desk (260-481-6030,, or in person in Kettler Hall, Room 206) for additional assistance.
