UCL Computer Security Newsletter - April 2009
The purpose of this newsletter is to keep all security reps and other
interested parties informed about what is happening around UCL
regarding computer security. Further information from the Computer
Security Team is always available at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cert .
1. New contact details
Please note, Daniela's email and public key have changed and are on our contacts page ( http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cert/contacts.html ). The new email address is daniela.cooper(at)ucl.ac.uk - please note that the full name is required as there is a name clash with an existing d.cooper
2. F-Secure 8.01
The latest version of F-Secure Client Security for Windows, version 8.01, is on the website. Apart from including all the hotfixes since October 08, it has reduced memory consumption, better performance and better protection against malware. As it has lower memory requirements it should be okay to load on older machines:
Vista (32/64bit) minimum 512Mb, recommended 1Gb
Win 2000 / XP minimum 256Mb, recommended 512Mb
Please see the readme file for comprehensive details
3. Data Destruction
Please note, a new version of our documentation is at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cert/secure_disposal_guidelines.pdf
Please note all correspondence from the UCL Computer Security Team is digitally signed either with personal PGP keys or the CERT team key (public keys available from http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cert/contacts.html ).
This newsletter and previous ones are available at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cert/cst-newsletters/index.html (except currently the March 2007 one as that had sensitive information in it).
We welcome feedback on the content and organisation of documents on our web page.
