A notice was just received from CUNY CIS confirming that the FBI has identified successful spearphishing campaigns directed at college and university students, especially during periods when financial aid funds are disbursed in large volumes. In general, the spearphishing emails request students’ login credentials for the University’s internal intranet. The cyber criminals then capture students’ login credentials, and after gaining access, change the students’ direct deposit destination to bank accounts within the threat actor’s control.
If you believe you are a victim of an online scam or malware campaign, please report it to IT Services and consider the following actions:
- Advise your financial institution immediately of any account information that may have been compromised.
- Watch for unexplained charges to your account
- Immediately change any passwords that you might have revealed.
- If you used the same password for multiple websites make sure to change it for each account, and do not use that same password in the future

Information Technology Services is pleased to announce new services available to the student community:
We are enhancing our outreach through social media.
An IT Services Support tech will be stationed inside the Library (2nd-floor study room) for the first two weeks of each semester (Fall & Spring) to answer questions related to email, IT Services, CUNYFirst, Blackboard, Printing, etc.
An IT Support person is now working on Saturdays to provide support for printing.
Toner, paper, and hardware issues are now addressed over the weekend.
During One Stop (C Level - Harold M. Proshansky Auditorium) IT representatives are available to answer questions and provide assistance.
Additionally, we are looking into enabling a chat service to allow students to communicate with the techs during business hours and will notify you when we are ready to launch.
Be sure to follow us on social media to receive up-to-date information:
Note: IT Services aims to provide excellent service to each and every user. Calling can cause hold times on the phone to be lengthy. Therefore we urge you to use Self-Service or email for non-urgent requests and issues which will prevent users from having to wait on the phone.

NYPD reported that starting on 10/23/18, pipe bombs were delivered to the homes and offices of high profile political figures in and around New York City. All of the devices were delivered in weighty large manila envelopes, addressed in block type and had the same number of American flag stamps. Graduate Center mail room personnel have been reminded of suspicious package identification and mail screening protocols and public safety officers have been informed of the threat. If you come across suspicious mail or packages, do not touch it, leave the area immediately and call Public Safety at 212-817-7777 (do not use a cell phone).
CIS is investigating reports of connectivity issues with the CRM/ERMS process. Incoming emails are not being processed at this time.
We are working with our hosting partner to resolve the issue as soon as possible. Until this is resolved, we ask that your user community report CUNYfirst issues and incidents directly to the local campus Help Desk and refrain from using the @cunyfirst.cuny.edu mailbox.
Please notify your user community. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Beginning October 1, 2018, we will be implementing the use of Listserv for GC Community Notices.
The GC Community Notice Listserv will serve as a communication tool to be used by select offices within the GC for the purpose of conveying important institutional messages to the GC community.
Listserv will enhance GC communications by enabling users to specify their preferred email, which is necessary due to the consortial nature of the GC. The Community Notice list on Listserv is organized into three lists: Students, Faculty, and Staff. If you would like to change your email address, subscribe or unsubscribe to these lists, please visit: gc.listserv.cuny.edu.
