High Risk Network Ports Block – November 23, 2016 09:00-10:00 PT

Starting November 23, 2016, UBC will be blocking a number of network ports identified as high risk for attacks.  A number of services and systems on the UBC network were built from legacy technologies and are either no longer supported or patched by the vendor, or do not meet current security standards, which may present a significant risk to UBC. These services and systems are usually accessible on standardized ports, which can be blocked at the border to reduce our Internet footprint.

For more information on this initiative and a complete list of blocked ports, please visit the Information Security Internal Communications webpage: https://infosec.it.ubc.ca. As it is a secured page, you’ll need to input your Campus-Wide Login credentials and, if you’re off-campus, use myVPN to access it.
