Full details of the duration of the funding and how to obtain the software can be seen at www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/sls/newsletters/newss2009.xml
For some time, the OUCS dialup service has been provided but not supported or maintained; the machines used were not maintained under warranty by the supplier and the software platform was no longer supported. Following a serious technical problem, the dialup service on 01865 792444 failed terminally and will not be reinstated. Service may still be available on 01865 434527 but nothing is guaranteed. Please consider moving to a broadband connection with an internet service provider for use away from the University Network.
OxCERT (Oxford Computer Emergency Response Team) publishes monthly reports on its work. See www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/network/security/reports.
