Many accounts require password reset due to recent phishing attack

Almost 100 people fell victim to a “phishing” email purporting to announce an “Important Meeting”. In order to protect the rest of the Middlebury account holders, the accounts which were compromised were disabled, and will need a password reset. If you have trouble logging in to your Middlebury account, it is likely that you are one of the victims of this attack. Please visit go.middlebury.edu/activate and reset your network password. This is an important warning to all that we should be extremely cautious about clicking on a link in an email. Although these phishing emails are well disguised, there are clues that they are not valid, so please think twice before clicking on any link in an email.

MIIS & Middlebury Drupal sites have a known issue

All Clear:  the latest content has been restore, sites current as of approximately 9:00 EST this morning, sites operating normally.

Update:  It was necessary to restore the supporting database for our primary Middlebury and MIIS drupal web sites.  The sites are now responsive, however we currently are restoring more current versions of the database, while this is taking place, there will be some older content displayed.

There is an issue that is causing the MIIS and Middlebury drupal sites to be unresponsive or slow. ITS is working on the issue and expect to resolve it this morning.

Banner INB, Hyperion EPM 11 Reporting and Degree Works are Down

Tuesday, September 15th
We are currently experiencing a disruption of the site-to-site connection between the Middlebury campuses and the Ellucian data center where our Ellucian Banner, Hyperion Reporting and Degree Works systems are hosted. This disruption began at approximately 12:38pm ET.

The disruption appears to be on the Ellucian side of the network connection. We are currently in contact with the Ellucian Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and they have mobilized their response staff to address this issue.

At this time the following systems are DOWN: Internet Native Banner (INB), Hyperion EPM 11 Reporting and Degree Works.

The Self-Service Banner (SSB) is UP as this connection works across the public internet.

We regret any inconvenience this service interruption is having on your day and will have this issue resolved as soon as possible. I will send out another message once all services are restored.
