University of Arizona computer security hacked?

By DA Morales on Aug. 4, 2011

The computer security at the UA seems tough to beat, or so it seemed until last night. If you have ever had to set up a password with the UA, they require you to change it once a year, and the new password selection process is grueling as you choose not a password but a “passphrase” that has to be about as a long as a midterm report. It can also bare no resemblance to your former passphrase in any way, and I would always end up forgetting my passphrase in about a week and starting the process all over. Despite this heightened security, last night the employee listserv (mailing list) was compromised and a very disturbing photo was sent to all recipients. http://tucsoncitizen.com/three-sonorans/2011/08/04/university-of-arizona-computer-security-hacked/
