Again, we would like to reiterate, the Office of Information Technology would NEVER send out such a message and would NEVER ask for anyone’s password via e-mail, over the phone, or in person. And it is your responsibility, as an SJU account holder, to protect your account and password, as stated in the “User Responsibilities” section of the “Guidelines for the Use of Computing & Network Resources” (http://it.sju.edu/policies-guidelines/usage_policy.html) as follows:
Be responsible for all use of your accounts and for protecting each account’s password. Users are not allowed to divulge computer account passwords. Passwords should consist of a mix of 7 or 8 alphanumeric characters, and should be changed frequently throughout each semester of use. Do not use easily identifiable personal information such as names, telephone numbers, birth dates, etc.
If you have already responded sending your information, you should IMMEDIATELY change your password from the Forgot Password link in the red box on http://my.sju.edu so no one else can access your account. You should also notify the IT Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-660-2920 so that we can determine if your account has been compromised in any way.
This is a very serious matter. A single compromised account could jeopardize the security of all SJU members. So we ask that you do your part by keeping your password private.
