The Security and Operations Center of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) and University of Amsterdam (UvA) have found that an unknown third party has gained access to the ICT environments of the AUAS and the UvA. Measures are being taken to minimise the impact and to ensure that education and research can continue to take place unimpeded.
We are investigating which areas of our ICT environment are affected. To limit the impact on education and research as much as possible, we will proactively shut down certain systems for a short period of time. While they are shut down, the systems and the information contained there will not be available. We understand that this is inconvenient and will try to limit it where possible.
In the interests of the investigation we cannot share any background information or details about the scope of the attack. You can find the latest information on uva.nl and hva.nl or on services.hva.nl and services.uva.nl, including updates on any further consequences, and if applicable, what actions you can take.
Lectures and exams can go ahead as scheduled. If this should change in any way, all staff and students affected will be informed.
