Earlier this month, we reported on security leaks that were found in the chips of current computer processors. In order to minimize security risks, maintenance work (including the installation of security patches) will be carried out on as many systems of the UvA as possible on 19 January, 26 January and 2 February. This maintenance work will take place during the regular maintenance window on Friday evening from 18:00-22:00. During this maintenance work a number of systems will be temporarily unavailable. Systems such as Blackboard and SIS will remain available during the maintenance.
The maintenance work went according to plan.
Due to the aforementioned maintenance work, the following systems will be temporarily unavailable on Friday 26 January from 18:00-22:00. We understand that this maintenance may cause problems, but due to the security risks it is not possible to postpone this maintenance any longer.
The systems that will be unavailable during the maintenance work on Friday 2 February will be displayed here on 29 January at the latest.
