On Tuesday, April 20th, several news and security organizations announced the existence of an ongoing attack against Pulse Secure VPN appliances around the world. Previously undisclosed vulnerabilities were identified as being used to compromise credentials and access company networks.
IS&T has already completed a precursory review and found no evidence of infiltration of our VPN systems. We have implemented the recommended mitigations and will continue to review the latest information as it becomes available over the coming days. However, please be aware that if we are required to run any additional mitigations, there may be a temporary interruption in our Pulse VPN service.
As a best practice we do recommend that all users periodically change their Chapman password. You may do so by following this link. (Note: You will have to update your Eduroam wireless credentials on your mobile devices when prompted).
If you need assistance with resetting your password, please contact our IS&T Service Desk team at (714) 997-6600 or Servicedesk@chapman.edu.
Also, please be sure to visit our System Status Page for the latest announcements and updates regarding any network or system service interruptions.
