Eerder dit jaar heeft HP een Notebook PC Battery Pack Replacement Program
 
aangekondigd betreffende een aantal laptopmodellen met accu's die mogelijk
 
oververhit kunnen raken met brand- en verbrandingsrisico als gevolg.  De
 
lijst met laptopmodellen die mogelijk dit probleem hebben bevat ook een
 
aantal Compaq producten. In de aankondiging van HP staat dat de
 
eenvoudigste manier om na te gaan of een bepaald model een risico oplevert is
 
via de
 
[http://www.hp.com/support/BatteryReplacement HP Notebook PC Battery Replacement Program website].
 
In de Recall aankondiging belooft HP om de betreffende accu's zonder kosten te
 
vervangen.

Earlier this year HP has issued a Notebook PC Battery Pack Replacement Program notice
 
regarding a number of notebook models which were shipped with battery packs which
 
have the potential to overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. The list
 
of affected models also includes a number of Compaq products. According to the
 
HP notice the easiest way to validate your battery is to visit the
 
[http://www.hp.com/support/BatteryReplacement HP Notebook PC Battery Replacement Program website].
 
The Recall notice states that if your battery is affected, HP will provide a free replacement
 
battery pack.

[nl]Met uw U-nummer en RU-wachtwoord logt u in op RU-webapplicaties. Als u uw wachtwoord kwijt bent, kunt u via C&CZ uw wachtwoord laten resetten. Breng uw personeelspas of ander id mee. U krijgt dan een tijdelijk wachtwoord waarmee u zichzelf een nieuw wachtwoord kunt geven in Identity Manager op [http://idm.ru.nl/ idm.ru.nl]. Maar wist u dat u zichzelf ook een activatiecode kunt laten sms-en nadat u éénmalig twee vragen geregistreerd heeft? Meer info op [http://www.ru.nl/idm/ www.ru.nl/idm] en [http://idm.ru.nl idm.ru.nl]. We bevelen deze doe-het-zelf oplossing van harte aan.

[en]With your U-number (personnel number) and RU-password you can login to RU webapplications. Probably you know you can ask for a password reset via C&CZ in case you loose your RU-password. Please bring your peronnel pass or other id in that case.  Are you also aware of the possibility to get an activationcode by sms? To enable this functionality, please once register two questions at idm.ru.nl. More info on [http://www.ru.nl/idm/ www.ru.nl/idm] and [http://idm.ru.nl idm.ru.nl].

De laatste dagen blijkt er bij sommige gebruikers meer spam binnen te komen dan normaal. Vaak is die spam gestuurd naar een oud kun.nl mail-adres. Op de [http://dhz.science.ru.nl Doe Het Zelf website] kunt u zien welke oude adressen u nog heeft. Als u een mailtje naar postmaster@science.ru.nl stuurt met welke adressen u verwijderd wil hebben, kan dat snel veel spam schelen. Er wordt een plan gemaakt om alle kun.nl adressen op te ruimen, maar misschien wilt u daar niet op wachten.

The last few days some users receive more spam than normally. In many cases the spam has been sent to an old kun.nl email-address. On the [http://diy.science.ru.nl Do It Yourself website] you can see what old addresses you still have. If you send a mail to postmaster@science.ru.nl with the list of addresses you want removed, that can make a big difference for you. A plan is being made to remove all kun.nl addresses, but maybe you would like your old addresses to be removed sooner.

In april, mei en juni 2011 voeren C&CZ, GDI en UCI een campagne over ICT-beveiliging in de hele RU. In de weken dat de campagne duurt, is er extra aandacht voor zaken als beveiligingssoftware, het up-to-date houden van alle software, het veiliger gebruik van Blackboard, het verzinnen van een goed wachtwoord, het veilig gebruiken van USB-sticks en ‘phishing’. De campagne bij FNWI is begonnen op maandag 23 mei 2011.
 
Op de [http://www.ru.nl/ict-beveiliging RU ICT-beveiligingssite] vindt u nog veel meer informatie over ICT-beveiliging. Alles onder het motto: RU Secure!

In April, May and June, C&CZ, GDI and UCI carry out an IT security campaign throughout Radboud University. During the campaign, extra attention will be paid to matters such as security software, keeping all software up-to-date, using Blackboard more secure, how to choose a safe password, how to use USB-sticks securely and 'phishing'. The campaign at the Faculty of Science started on Monday, May 23. On the [http://www.ru.nl/ict-beveiliging RU IT security site] you can find much more information about IT security.

Veel besmettingen van pc’s vinden plaats doordat malware op een USB-stick automatisch opstart zodra u de stick in de pc steekt. U kunt dat voorkomen door de [http://www.ru.nl/ict-beveiliging/bedreigingen_en/uitzetten-autorun/ ‘autorun’- functie voor USB-sticks] op uw pc uit te zetten.

=== Phishing ===
 
<itemTags>studenten,medewerkers,docenten</itemTags>
 
[nl]
 
Ook gestudeerde en studerende mensen trappen er op de RU blijkbaar soms in: phishing.  U krijgt een mail die er op het eerste gezicht uitziet alsof een ondersteuner u vraagt uw wachtwoord even te mailen of op een website in te vullen, omdat anders uw mail-account geblokkeerd wordt. Reageer nooit naar deze nep-afzenders! Een ondersteuner zal u nooit om uw wachtwoord vragen!
 
[/nl]
 
[en]
 
Sometimes even university staff and students are tricked into replying to a phishing email: you receive an email that looks like someone from support asks to reply with your password, to prevent your email account from being blocked. Never reply to these fake senders! Support personnel would never ask you for your password!

<itemTags>studenten,medewerkers,docenten</itemTags>
 
[nl]
 
Als uw computer onbeheerd achter blijft (geen screensaver met wachtwoordbeveiliging), kan er met de data op uw pc geknoeid worden. Ook kan iemand dan uit uw naam acties ondernemen die niet in de haak zijn. In de campagneweken wordt extra gelet op onbeheerde, niet vergrendelde pc’s op niet afgesloten kamers. In zo'n geval kunt u op uw monitor een 'statische' sticker vinden. De beeldschermvergrendeling van een Windows pc kunt u aanzetten door tegelijkertijd de Windows- en de L-toets in te drukken.
 
[/nl]
 
[en]
 
Leaving your office for a few minutes? Then make sure to have your screen locked! If you leave your computer unattended (using no screensaver with password protection) and your room hasn't been locked, there is a chance that the data on your PC could be compromised, or that illegal actions could be carried out by someone. During the campaign, we will devote extra attention to unattended PC’s. You might be surprised to find a 'static' sticker on your monitor. You can turn on screen lock on a Windows computer by pressing the Windows and the L-button simultaneously.

[http://www.ru.nl/cert CERT-RU], die ICT-beveiligingsincidenten binnen de RU co&ouml;rdineert, ontvangt met enige regelmaat meldingen over besmette PC's die spam-mail staan te verspreiden. Vaak zijn deze opgemerkt door [http://www.senderbase.org/senderbase_queries/detailip?search_string=131.174.0.0%2F16;amp;max_rows=50;amp;dnext_set=0;amp;tddorder=lastday+desc;amp;which_others=%2F16#page Senderbase] omdat het dagelijkse volume mail veel hoger is dan het maandelijks gemiddelde. De routers bij FNWI loggen het initi&euml;ren van een SMTP-verbinding naar buiten de RU. Bij een abnormaal hoog volume gaat er een alarm af. Daardoor zijn besmette PC's meestal al weer schoongemaakt als de melding bij CERT-RU binnenkomt.

The routers at the Science Faculty log the initialization of an SMTP-connection outside Radboud University. Therefore spamming PC's often already have been cleaned when CERT-RU gets noticed by an outside party.

voormalige Computer Ondersteuningsgroepen (COG's) van de verschillende
 
faculteiten en clusters van onze universiteit.  Vanwege de bijzondere rol van
 
ICT voor FNWI is C&CZ als facultaire ICT-dienst blijven bestaan.
 
 
Op grond van een besluit van het College van Bestuur worden RU-breed
 
alle standaard Windows werkplekken en studenten-PC's ondergebracht bij
 
GDI.  De overige ICT diensten bij FNWI blijven in beheer bij C&CZ.  GDI bereidt
 
momenteel de overname van de Windows werkplekken van de
 
stafafdelingen alsmede alle onderwijs-PC's voor.  De gebruikers zullen
 
ruim van tevoren worden geinformeerd over de wijzigingen die dit met zich

In het kader van een gefaseerde overstap van Fedora naar Ubuntu zijn er enkele Ubuntu clients en servers geinstalleerd.
 
Zo ook is er is een experimentele <em>Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)</em> login server <b>lilo1.science.ru.nl</b> geinstalleerd voor algemeen gebruik.
 
 
Er is gekozen voor Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) vanwege <b>L</b>(ong) <b>T</b>(ime) <b>S</b>(upport), 3 jaar voor desktops en 5 jaar voor servers.
 
Dit in tegenstelling tot pakweg 1 jaar updates en support voor Fedora.
 
Basis software, zoals veelvuldig in gebruik binnen de Beta Faculteit, is aanwezig.
 
 
Het kan bijna niet anders dan dat er nog zaken onbreken of anders werken dan op de huidige Fedora 11 systemen.
 
Ook kan het zijn dat instellingen voor de Fedora installatie niet probleemloos werken op een Ubuntu systeem.
 
Aarzel echter niet om omissies of problemen te melden.
 
Helaas kunnen we niet toezeggen dat we alle problemen per omgaande zullen verhelpen.

One of these is an experimental <em>Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx)</em> login server <b>lilo1.science.ru.nl</b> for general use.
 
 
The choice for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) has been made because of the <b>L</b>(ong) <b>T</b>(ime) <b>S</b>(upport), 3 years for desktops and 5 years for servers.
 
This in contrast to approximately 1 year updates and support for Fedora.
 
Software, commonly used within the faculty, is available.
 
 
More likely than not, packages or programs will be missing or work in slightly different ways than on a Fedora system.
 
It's also possible that settings for Fedora might cause problems on the Ubuntu systems.
 
Please do not hesitate to report problems.
 
Regrettably, we cannot garantee that all problems can or will be solved immediately.

Op dit moment zijn de login servers <b>lilo.science.ru.nl</b> (<b>LI</b>nux <b>LO</b>gin server) en <b>stitch.science.ru.nl</b> beschikbaar.
 
Echter de echte machines hebben een andere naam, respectivelijk <b>porthos.science.ru.nl</b> en <b>lijfwacht.science.ru.nl</b>.
 
Dit geeft aanleiding tot verwarring bij sommige gebruikers.
 
Om dit probleem aan te pakken worden machines uitgefaseerd en hernoemd.
 
 
De oudste server <b>lilo.science.ru.nl</b> zal uitgefaseerd worden op het moment dat de <b>lilo1.science.ru.nl</b> de taken kan overnemen.
 
De huidige Fedora login server <b>stitch.science.ru.nl</b> wordt hernoemd naar <b>lilo2.science.ru.nl</b>.
 
 
De naam <b>lilo</b> wordt tzt een alias voor de snelste login server en de naam <b>stitch</b> wordt voorlopig een alias voor <b>lilo2</b>.
 
Bij vervanging van login servers zullen we vervolgens doornummeren, dus <b>lilo3</b>, <b>lilo4</b>, etc.

Currently the login servers are named <b>lilo.science.ru.nl</b> (<b>LI</b>nux <b>LO</b>gin server) and <b>stitch.science.ru.nl</b>.
 
However, the actual machines have different names, <b>porthos.science.ru.nl</b> and <b>lijfwacht.science.ru.nl</b> respectively.
 
This leads to confusion with some of our users.
 
To address this issue we will phase out and rename some machines.
 
 
The oldest server <b>lilo.science.ru.nl</b> will be phased out no sooner than <b>lilo1.science.ru.nl</b> can take over.
 
The current Fedora login server <b>stitch.science.ru.nl</b> will be renamed to <b>lilo2.science.ru.nl</b>.
 
 
The name <b>lilo</b> will eventually become an alias for the fastest login server and the name <b>stitch</b> will, for the time being, become an alias for <b>lilo2</b>.
 
Whenever replacing login servers, new machine will receive a successive number, so <b>lilo3</b>, <b>lilo4</b>, etc.

Indien u op dit moment nog een oudere versie van Office gebruikt is het raadzaam om over te stappen.
 
 
Indien de PC die u gebruikt eigendom is van de faculteit kunt u gebruik maken van de campus licentie en kunt U de software bij ons lenen of rechtstreeks installeren van de install disk (\\install-srv.science.ru.nl\install).

If your PC is owned by the university than you are allowed to use the campus license and you can borrow the software from our department or do the installation directly from the install disk (\\install-srv.science.ru.nl\install).

[nl]
 
Om afdelings printers beter te bedienen is er een Windows 2008 printer server ingericht.
 
Het betreft de <b>drukker.nwi.ru.nl</b>.
 
Deze machine kan zowel Windows XP, Windows Vista (32 en 64 bit) en Windows 7 (32 en 64 bit) bedienen.
 
Ook worden drivers dmv aankoppelen van de printer server en het selecteren van de print queue automatisch geinstalleerd.
 
 
Voordelen:
 
* Tot op heden weinig klachten
 
Nadelen:
 
* <b>Uitsluitend</b> bedoeld voor standaard, veel voorkomende printers (HP LaserJet, Xerox, Ricoh)
 
* <b>Beperkte</b> beveiliging tegen misbruik
 
* Sluit niet aan op de bestaande CnCZ printbudget software, dus <b>geen</b> accounting of printbuget faciliteiten.
 
 
Daarom komen alleen printers in aanmerking die niet publiek toegankelijk zijn.
 
Neem contact op met CnCZ om te overleggen of een printer in aanmerking komt.
 
 
Zie [[Printers_en_printen]] voor uitleg hoe een printer aan te koppelen.

A new Windows 2008 printer server has been installed to support departemental printing.
 
The server is named <b>drukker.nwi.ru.nl</b>.
 
This server can support printing from Windows XP, Windows Vista (32 and 64 bit) and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit).
 
Printer drivers are automatically installed by connecting to the printer server and selecting the print queue.
 
 
Pros:
 
* Currently very little problems occurred
 
Cons:
 
* <b>Only</b> for standard, frequent installed, common available printers (HP LaserJet, Xerox, Ricoh)
 
* <b>Little</b> protection against abuse
 
* Cannot make use of the CnCZ print budget software, so <b>no</b> accounting or print budget facilities
 
 
This implies that only printers that are not publically available should be considered adding to this server.
 
Please contact CnCZ to figure out if a printer is suitable for installation.

Management of CMS websites for FNWI at C&CZ

Until recently Peter Klok (IMAPP) managed the FNWI websites in the Content Management System (CMS) of the university. This work will be continued by Wim G.H.M. Janssen (also IMAPP), at and under the responsibility of C&CZ. This will ensure that it will become more integrated with the C&CZ service over time. There may be some confusion: C&CZ also has an employee Wim P.J. Janssen, so more often a Wim-Wim-situation will arise.

On the C&CZ-wiki one can see a recent and a list of C&CZ staff.

Electronic cost declaration through i-Expense, also from home/Internet

Since the introduction of i-Expense, the electronic cost declaration module in BASS-Finlog - the financial computer system of our university, the number of BASS users has increased enormously. New users need to be aware whether they can access BASS directly or only through the so called Port Forwarder. Recently, access from home/Internet has been made possible if one uses VPN. More information on this can be found on the BASS page and in a previous [news article] about using BASS in combination with the RU firewall.

Logging on to BASS may not be without problems from any given workstation because the BASS infrastructure does not support the various kinds of PC-systems seamlessly. Cost declarations on paper are allowed if logging on to BASS fails for some reason, until the logon difficulties are solved. The central organisation and C&CZ work together to this end.

Booking system for scientific instruments

In a collaboration between the Science faculty and the UMCN, C&CZ has built a web application for the booking of scientific instruments of the Microscopic Imaging Centre (MIC), the Gemeenschappelijk Instrumentarium (GI) and Organic Chemistry. The web application can be found at https://bookings.science.ru.nl. Because the application was written as a generic solution, it will soon also be used for the lending system of laptops by the Library of Science. If you have a booking/reservation question which may be solved using this application, please contact C&CZ.

Safe Disposal of Data Carriers

For the disposal of data carriers (such as disks, tapes, etc.) which may contain sensitive data a safe waste channel is now available through the Logistics Center.

New Functional Manager CMS

For many years everyone at FNWI who was involved in websites based on the RU Content Management System (CMS) relied on Peter Klok for help and advice. In IT terms Peter was our functional manager. Because of Peter's retirement we now have a new functional manager: Wim Janssen, IT specialist at the IMAPP institute. C&CZ (especially Fred Melssen) will function as Wim's backup.

Replacement of Ricoh multifunctionals by Konica Minolta

The European tender for multifunctionals (printer/copier/scanner) for the university was won by Konica Minolta. This means that the current Ricoh machines will be replaced. There is a project to make the print/copy/scan system Péage suitable for employees. The printing and copying costs for employees will be charged to their "aanstellingskostenplaats", i.e. the current budget groups will disappear. Until this project is completed successfully, the C&CZ printbudget system will be used.

  • Since the new Peage system will not support Xafax copycards, it is advised to minimize your local stock of Xafax copycards.

More IP-numbers for ru-wlan and Science (wireless)

Monday, March 4th 2013 at 18:00 hours, the number of IP numbers that is available in the FNWI buildings for ru-wlan and Science was doubled, as was announced shortly before. Because ru-wlan moved to a new range, users of ru-wlan lost connectivity for at most 15 minutes. There was already a plan to replace ru-wlan and Science within the FNWI buildings by the RU-wide Eduroam and ru-wlan, but the wireless network usage had grown so fast that we could not wait for this plan to be realized. The week before, some wireless users at times could not even get an IP address, although the lease time had been brought down to 30 minutes. Therefore this temporary measure became necessary on such short notice. Because there are more IP numbers available now, more users can nowswitch from Science to ru-wlan wireless, in preparation for the realization of the plan mentioned above.

Phishing mail: "Belangrijke boodschap met betrekking tot uw Radboud Universiteit Webmail" en "Fwd: Your e-mail will expire soon"

Recently a number of employees of the Faculty of Science received a phishing email with the subject "Belangrijke boodschap met betrekking tot uw Radboud Universiteit Webmail" and content "Nieuw Belangrijk Veiligheid Bericht Alert! Inloggen om het probleem op te lossen." Others received mail with subject "Fwd: Your e-mail will expire soon". The link provided in the mail points to a copy of our Horde webmail service. Big differences are:

  • the URL is not within science.ru.nl
  • it is not a secure https connection, the lock is not present
  • the account name and password that you type in, do not arrive at C&CZ servers, but at Internet criminals. They can then access all files and mail of that Science account. Usually the criminals try to use the user credentials to send spam via our mail servers. This is something we notice; in such a case C&CZ will disable the user account a.s.a.p. to prevent further abuse of the account and to prevent our mail servers from ending up on black lists.

It is not the first time we see a phishing attack specifically aimed at Science-users and it will most probably not be the last time either. Please stay alert! If you want to read more about phishing, please see this monthly security newsletter.

  Affected     : Users of horde webmail and users wanting to send mail to e.g. hotmail.com

Horde webmail again appeared to be misused for sending spam. This could happen because a naive user gave the Science password to phishers/spammers. After first stopping horde, early Friday morning we disabled the account of the naive user and restarted horde. Saturday morning it appeared that this short spam-outbreak had caused administrators of hotmail.com to add our mail server to their blacklist.

Phishing mail: Update Your Web Mailbox

Recently a number of employees of the Faculty of Science received a phishing email with the subject "Update Your Web Mailbox !!!" This email is supposedly sent by "Science.Ru.Nl Administrator" and tries to lure the recipients into giving away their login credentials. It is not the first time we see a phishing attack specifically aimed at Science-users and it will most probably not be the last time either. The mail contains a link to a shortened URL under http://goo.gl/ . If you fall for this and click on the link it leads you to a (now deleted) Google Docs site. If you are gullible enough to log in with your Science (or RU) credentials, then these become known to Internet criminals. This means that your account and all of your files and email are accessible by those criminals. This can go undetected for a long time until the user credentials are abused in such a way that the effects becomes visible.

Recommendations after nu.nl hack

The popular Dutch news website NU.nl has been compromised and altered to serve a malicious worm to those who visited it on March 14, 2012 between 11:30 and 12:30. PC's with older versions of Adobe Reader and Java may have been infected with the Sinowal worm, that is designed to steal passwords, online banking information and other sensitive data. We heard reports that up-to-date installations of F-Secure Client Security blocked this malware. According to ComputerIdee only a few security software suites recognized this malware. The version of Hitmanpro mentioned there has been copied to the Install network share, for employees and students who want to scan their PC.

General recommendations to limit risks:

  • Always update all software, especially browsers, mail clients and software used to show content from the Internet: Java, PDF-readers (Adobe, ...), Office suites, Flash, ...
  • Never trust a compromised system again: Clean the Master Boot Record, e.g. with TDSSkiller by Kaspersky and do a fresh install of the OS, with all updates available.

Please use ru-wlan instead of Science wireless!

In the near future the wireless access points in the Huygens building and the buildings around it, will be replaced by new ones, based on a new technique. The Science wireless network will then no longer be available. Therefore please switch over to using the ru-wlan wireless network, that is available before and after. One can use ru-wlan with U-number and RU-password, but also with and Science-password. After the switch, faster (wireless-N) access points wille be used in busy areas. After the switch the eduroam wireless network will be available too, one can use that with and RU-password, but also with and Science-password. Before the switch, eduroam is only available near the Huygens building on the terrace behind the restaurant. In the future ru-wlan will be switched off, only eduroam will survive. Furthermore, there is a plan to have more wireless access outside of the Huygens building, i.e. at the central entrance and the grass behind the Huygens building.

Never react to an e-mail that asks for your password!

A few days ago one of our users replied to an e-mail that apparently was sent by "support" and asked for username and password. This account was later misused to send hundred thousands spam-mails through our mail server. This resulted in the blacklisting of our outgoing mail server in e.g. the blacklists of Windows Live Hotmail. The fastest way to remedy this is to give our outgoing mail server a different IP-address, which we did this morning. Lesson: Never reply to an e-mail that asks for your username and password!

BASS and single logon

For security reasons direct access to the concern application BASS used to be blocked, even from within the RU internal network; one had to logon to the Port Forwarder first which meant two logons in a row. With the RU central firewall in place the first logon is not necessary anymore (although still possible) for PC's which are located behind the firewall from a network topology point of view. A significant amount of the PC's in FNWI have already been relocated behind the firewall.

The latest version of Matlab, R2011a, is available for departments that have bought licenses. The software and license codes can be acquired through a mail to postmaster for those entitled to it. The software can also be found on the install-disc. The C&CZ-managed 64- and 32-bit Linux machines have this version installed, an older version (/opt/matlab-R2010b/bin/matlab) is still available temporarily. The C&CZ-managed Windows machines will receive this version too.

Versioning of text and source code: Subversion hosting

Are you developing software? Do you write code? You've probably created some zip files of working versions to fall back to. Sounds familiar? You can now use the Subversion service of C&CZ. Subversion supports you with versioning of source code files. Using Subversion, progress becomes visible and there's always an 'undo button'. Ultimately, it's a nice way to manage any kind of collaborative work where multiple individuals are editing the same files. The Subversion service is available for people with a Science account. Repository access is also possible for people from outside the faculty.

Kun.nl mail-addresses removed

All users with a @*.kun.nl email address, which almost always is used only to forward the mail to a @*.ru.nl address, received almost two months ago an email that these addresses would be removed today. Today all @*.kun.nl have been removed, with a temporary exception for departments that have not been able to get externally registered addresses changed. This removal of @*.kun.nl email addresses has been coordinated between the administrators of email servers at Radboud University.
