E-Mail and File Safety

April 8th, 2014

There has been increased virus activity in the computing world as of late. These new viruses are very destructive and problematic. Users are getting these viruses via malicious file attachments and links in e-mails.
The Milford Public Schools has experienced issues with these viruses as well. We are asking all staff members to be diligent and careful with which e-mails they open, download files and click links from.  We are tightening the e-mail filter to assist in this problem.

Some tips for avoiding contracting a virus or having your password compromised:

  • Check who the sender of the e-mail is
     For example, if the e-mail is supposedly coming from a bank, verify with your bank if the received message is legitimate. If the e-mail is from a personal or professional contact, confirm with the person that they indeed sent the message. Friends, family and co-workers can have their accounts compromised by viruses and fake links as well and then end up doing the same thing to you, unintentionally.

    The Information Systems Department will NEVER send an e-mail asking for your password.
  • Double-check the content of the message
    If there are obvious factual errors or discrepancies that you can spot in the e-mail from a bank, friend or co-worker - do not download any files or click any links. Generic messages such as “Have you seen this yet?” or “Here are the photos I talked about” are classic lures.
  • Avoid downloading files or clicking links
    In general, files and links should be treated skeptically. A zip or exe file is especially dangerous. If you are unsure of the legitimacy of an e-mail, do not download or click.
  • Suspicious e-mail activity
    If it looks like you are getting a lot of “undeliverable” messages from people you never e-mailed - change your password immediately. If you ever think your account may have been compromised, immediately change your password. A guide for changing your password can be found at this link. (Click the blue text.)

    Thank-you.

You may have noticed that your “gold e” for editing the teacher web-sites was not appearing correctly in the Internet Explorer browser. This issue has been resolved and the “gold e” icons should be appearing again.

If you still do not see the “gold e” icons, please clear the browser’s cache. A guide for doing so can be found here.

Thank-you.
