E-mail worm

On September 9, a malicious e-mail worm was identified in the UMail system. Information Technology began implementing measures to suppress the spread of the e-mail as soon as they could pinpoint the unique and identifiable traits of the communication. The e-mail wreaked havoc nationally.  The virus, named “here you have,” acts like a Trojan horse, promising free downloads only to spam the same e-mail to everyone in the recipient’s address book, crippling e-mail servers.

Unlike many e-mail services across the country, UMail was uninterrupted and email delivery flowed normally throughout the entire event.
