Widespread security incidents with UO printers
Outside attacks on printers are a widespread problem on campus right now.
When UO Information Services’ security team detects a printer in CAS that they suspect is insecurely configured, CASIT is then informed and we immediately take actions to secure the printer. End-users are encouraged to report any unusual printing activity as well. Once secured, CASIT reports these printers to UO Network Services in order to block all such future threats via an edge-of-campus firewall.
CASIT is therefore examining each potentially compromised printer individually to change the security settings so that they are as strict as possible.

Thank you for your patience with this process.
