NYPD reported that starting on 10/23/18, pipe bombs were delivered to the homes and offices of high profile political figures in and around New York City. All of the devices were delivered in weighty large manila envelopes, addressed in block type and had the same number of American flag stamps. Graduate Center mail room personnel have been reminded of suspicious package identification and mail screening protocols and public safety officers have been informed of the threat. If you come across suspicious mail or packages, do not touch it, leave the area immediately and call Public Safety at 212-817-7777 (do not use a cell phone).
CIS is investigating reports of connectivity issues with the CRM/ERMS process. Incoming emails are not being processed at this time.
We are working with our hosting partner to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Until this is resolved, we ask that your user community report CUNYfirst issues and incidents directly to the local campus Help Desk and refrain from using the @cunyfirst.cuny.edu mailbox.
Please notify your user community. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Beginning October 1, 2018, we will be implementing the use of Listserv for GC Community Notices.
The GC Community Notice Listserv will serve as a communication tool to be used by select offices within the GC for the purpose of conveying important institutional messages to the GC community.
Listserv will enhance GC communications by enabling users to specify their preferred email, which is necessary due to the consortial nature of the GC. The Community Notice list on Listserv is organized into three lists: Students, Faculty, and Staff. If you would like to change your email address, subscribe or unsubscribe to these lists, please visit: gc.listserv.cuny.edu.

The Graduate center email system is currently being targeted by a phishing campaign.
The most common phishing email looks like this:
We urge users to never click a link in an unsolicited email message and to change all passwords if they suspect an account has been compromised.
Microsoft will automatically block accounts that were compromised and are sending spam emails. A number of users have had their accounts blocked this week. Anyone who is having this issue should contact us at email@example.com and we will follow up with them individually.
All staff, faculty and students are encouraged to take this 30 minute security awareness program.
IT assists the GC community in obtaining all the necessary pricing information to make price conservative purchases. In order to streamline the process for requesting software pricing assistance, we have created a new Software Pre-Procurement Assistance Form that is now available to the GC Community. Please visit the IT Self-Service Resources page and login to access this new resource.
If you have questions, please contact IT Services for support.
