Scam of the Week: Your Breached Passwords Are Not Safe!

You lose if you reuse! The bad guys are using your breached passwords to access your online accounts. Even if a data breach happened years ago, the bad guys will attempt to use your breached passwords across all of your online accounts to see if they will still work – scary!

New research says more than 25 percent of consumers hit by a data breach later become victims of identity fraud. One of the easiest ways to help prevent identity fraud is to create unique and complex passwords for ALL of the online services you use, not just for the account that was compromised during a breach.

As creatures of habit, it’s easy for us to reuse old passwords. But, it’s even easier for bad guys to use this information against you. Be safe and don’t reuse passwords!

Think before you click.

Hand Art Center Opening Reception on June 28

Join us for light hors d’oeuvres at an opening reception celebrating two new exhibits on Thursday, June 28, from 4-6 p.m. at the Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center.

  • Harry Louis Freund: Ancient Cultures of Latin America
  • Alumni Permanent Collection Highlights

Harry Louis Freund: Ancient Cultures of Latin America
June 14 – Aug. 4

Louis Freund was the artist-in-residence at Stetson University between 1949 and 1967 and acted as the chairman of the university’s art department for a decade. During his period at Stetson, Freund received grants which enabled him to travel to Central America and visit various historic sites and monuments from the indigenous civilizations of the Toltec, Mixtec and Zapotec. The trips that Freund took to Central America inspired new themes in his work, and he began depicting the monuments, relics and landscape of the ancient sites.

In 2000, the Stetson University Duncan Gallery of Art held a memorial exhibition in honor of Louis Freund and his passing the previous year. After nearly two decades in storage, Freund’s artwork in Stetson University’s collection will be mounted in the galleries once again for the public’s education and enjoyment.

Alumni Permanent Collection Highlights
June 14 – Aug. 4

The Alumni 2018 highlights works in the Stetson University permanent art collection and is a celebration of our studio art programs and graduates of the Creative Arts Department. The body of work features a diverse exploration of art forms including sculpture, painting, ceramics, collage and mixed media works.

Featuring Erin McCollum, Jasmin Ramos, Bianca Enos, Taylor Gunderson, Troy Norton, Whitney Wolf III, Ana Francis and Ashleigh Stuart.

Web Server Upgrades

Web Services and Information Technology will be performing a web server upgrade on the morning of Tuesday, June 26, between 6 a.m. and noon. The upgrade includes moving the university website to an HTTPS only URL. The university is making the move to ensure better privacy, consistency and security. That is, https://www.stetson.edu/, and all the pages that follow will become https://www.stetson.edu/.

This change involves updating website links that are currently HTTP, setting up redirects and running error and quality checks. While we believe this will be an error-free change, we ask our WebGarage and WordPress users to please check their sites and links later that day.

The server upgrade will not impact email, Blackboard and MyStetson.

During this time frame, there will be a web content freeze for any WebGarage-based or WordPress-based website as files are copied from one server to another. While we do not anticipate any server downtime during this process, there is always a slight chance that the web server may briefly become unavailable as systems are taken down and brought back up. We are starting the upgrade before the workday and will be available during working hours should any unforeseen problems arise.

Again, other web-based systems such as Stetson University’s email, Blackboard and MyStetson will be not be affected throughout this entire process. If you need to get in touch with any of the web staff, please send an email to web@stetson.edu during the maintenance window.

Thank you for your patience as we improve our systems.
