Dear Students and Staff Members,
Your password is the first line of defense, safeguarding your privacy and the university's assets.
In the past few years, we are seeing fraudulent attacks at your passwords, a worldwide phenomenon, impersonating official university units – specifically the computation center. In some cases, faculty members and students sent their passwords, resulting in large volumes of junk mail sent from the university. The university is then blacklisted as sending spam and many institutions may delay or deny receiving email from us.
To combat this phenomenon we are enforcing a policy of changing passwords once a year.
This is not a new policy. It has been in our regulations for many years. You can change your password using any browser by surfing to the university home‐page, clicking on "Staff" or "Students" and clicking on "Changing BGU Password".
The password must be changed until June 11, 2018
If you changed your password since January 1, 2018 - you are not required to change it again.
If you do not change your password until June 11, 2018, your computing resources will be locked.
We remind once again that nobody should request your password and that you are not to give your password to anyone.
For further details, please contact your computing referent or the computation center helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 6477171.
Director, Computation Center
