Files stored on University servers are intermittently scanned for viruses using antivirus software. If a file is found to contain a virus, system administrators apply
the following procedures:
- The file and its owner are
added to a list of known infections.
- A Computer Services system
administrator attempts to disinfect the file.
- If the virus cannot be removed, the file is moved
to an alternate location, or may be deleted.
- The user is notified of the
virus and current condition of the infected file.
