Remote Desktop Currently Unavailable

The Department of Computing and Communications would like to advise MUN Remote Desktop users that it has been subjected to a hacking attack which enters our network through Remote Desktop Protocol(RDP). To date over 20 desktop computers have been infected, and once they are infected they attack key servers such as our Microsoft Mail server. As a short term protection measure, C&C has closed all RDP traffic to the network. We recognize that this is an inconvenience to the university community, however, it is necessary as we build our response to this threat.

For further information, contact the C&C Service Desk at 737-4595 or

Update 4:15PM: Our technicians are still working to resolve this issue. No estimated resolution time available.
