IT says beware of virus-infected e-mail
E-mails purporting to be from "firstname.lastname@example.org," "email@example.com," "The Scu.edu team," or other similar address reporting a system outage or that your account will be deleted for inappropriate use are viruses. They were not sent by Information Technology nor by Santa Clara University.
IT's warning: Do not open the messages. Delete and empty from your mailbox.
If you did open the attachmentcontained in this message and your anti-virus software is up-to-date, your system should be fine. Otherwise, contact I.T. at x5700 immediately for assistance.
These messages are very common right now. If you are particularly concerned about a specific message, one that contains a virus or one that you suspect may, please feel free to forward it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. IT will evaluate it to see if there is any cause for concern.
Information Technology does periodically send campus wide messages with information about the systems, network or e-mail. However, when such messages are sent, they come from e-mail accounts that can be verified within the GroupWise address book and the information is also posted on the IT website at http://it.scu.edu.
IT never sends executable attachments with their announcements. More information about these and other viruses is available at:

The survey opened for March 19 and continues through April 9.
Here is the on-line survey:
