WVU Virus Alert

If you see the following message on your computer or any other WVU computer, IMMEDIATELY:

  1. Turn off your computer. (Hold the power button down if the computer will not shut down.)
  2. Unplug the ethernet cable (which looks like a large telephone cable).
  3. Contact OIT Help at 3-4444.

Do NOT turn the computer back on.

Do not be afraid to report the infection. This is not the user’s fault, but we MUST find all infected computers ASAP.
