Viruses and other malicious software can spread quickly across campus, destroying files in the process.

  • It is recommend that all personal Windows or Macintosh systems that connect to the University network run up-to-date antivirus software.
  • You should scan all mail attachments and files on portable devices (eg, USB sticks) before opening them, and treat all email attachments with caution.
  • If you connect a privately owned laptop which is infected to the University of Auckland wireless network, your access to the wireless network will be revoked without notice.
