Social Networking Hack

Social Networking Hack

What is the purpose of this alert?

To alert the Duquesne community and users of the social networking sites MySpace, LinkedIn, and Tumblr that these sites have had their security compromised and their users' information (including usernames and passwords) leaked.

CTS recommends the following actions:

If you have a user account with any of these sites, CTS strongly urges you to reset your password for the account. If your password for these sites is the same as your password for other sites, we recommend that you reset those passwords as well, since one compromised account can often lead to many others.

If you believe your account was compromised as a part of this security breach, you can reset your MultiPass password here: www.duq.edu/multipass

If you have any questions, please contact the CTS Help Desk at 412-396-4357 or by emailing help@duq.edu
