Universities Rush to Protect Networks (TechNews.com)
The move should not have come as a surprise to GMU students. Last week, as freshmen reported for orientation, they were required to meet face-to-face with a network security expert to have their laptop or computer checked out. Upper classmen were greeted by school officials who handed out the latest anti-virus software. To get the school’s message across, all students were asked to sign a document confirming that their computers were updated with all the needed security upgrades.
Those darned students. As I always say, working at a university would be much better if there were no students.
