UCL response to Cyber Security threat - 13 December 2021

13 December 2021

On Friday the UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) was alerted to a serious vulnerability in some IT systems.  UCL is responding to this alert by updating potentially vulnerable systems and services across the university.  While this work is ongoing, you may experience some interruption in service and/or you may have to use the UCL VPN to access some services such as Tableau.

Thank you for your patience while we work to strengthen UCL’s security against this new vulnerability.  It is very unlikely that any individual user’s system will be directly affected but if you have any concerns about systems and services you are using, then information and help services are available on the Information Security Group Website

Please continue to report any issues to the IT Services Helpdesk
