Chain Messages and Warnings
Chain messages are a burden on e-mail systems and to the vast majority of people who receive them. University IT reminds you to be suspicious of messages that ask you to pass them to "everyone you know." Doing so can lead to an endless chain of forwarded messages that go on long past any real or imagined threat. Do you have ideas that should be shared as security tips of the week? If so, send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu.
