UniSA locks down devices and Citrix solution after cyber attack
A number of PCs and laptops have been disabled, while Citrix VA is now unavailable.
The University of South Australia (UniSA) was hit by a cyber attack over the weekend, causing “major outages” across student applications.
According to the university, several PCs and laptops have been disabled “as a security precaution” as a result of the unspecified attack.
Areas also down include the online booking systems, user-defined function network drive and incident logging.
In a reply to a student on Facebook, the university added that “there is no need for students to update their password”, however adding it is “good opportunity to check you’re following best practice for passwords”.
