Today, UITS sent out a mass warning that the Adobe Acrobat reader had been compromised and advised that you not open any PDF files that you weren’t expecting. They then detailed the threat–you guessed it!–in a PDF attachment. Kudos to Tyler Pace for spotting this.

Open the PDF to see that you aren't supposed to open any PDFs.

    My favorite UITS moment occured earlier this year.

    In an effort to warn incoming freshmen about the dangers of file sharing, they launched a campaign with tee-shirts which looked like this:

    Naturally, many freshmen and parents who saw UITS employees wearing this shirt took it to have a completely different meaning than what they were going for.
