1. Changing Passwords

Any passwords that have been exposed will need to be changed as soon as possible, however do remember that this needs to be done from a machine that is free of malware. If in doubt you may wish to talk to your IT officers about where they recommend you do so. Remember, you should not enter these passwords again on the machine that was infected until you are confident it has been effectively cleaned.

Please note that all passwords for University (or College) systems that have been entered via a machine compromised with keylogging malware MUST be changed. If you are at all unsure as to whether a password may have been entered via the system, change it. University IT staff may confirm that such action has been taken.
