UO Response to Heartbleed Bug: Change Your Duck ID Password


Due to the threat posed by the Heartbleed Bug, UO Information Services is requiring that all users change their Duck ID passwords at AFTER they receive an e-mail from Information Services asking them to do so. DO NOT change your password until you have received an e-mail from instructing you to do so.

If you are a CAS Google Apps for Education user, you will also want to change your password for that service.

From Information Services:

“This request comes out of interest for your online safety. The Heartbleed flaw, announced April 7, is a severe flaw that allows hackers to get personal information without detection, and this is why we are asking you to change your password.”
