New global WiFi vulnerability that could affect you
Security experts have recently discovered a new vulnerability called KRACK affecting WiFi users. KRACK is a vulnerability with WiFi that allows an attacker to access any information you're sending over the network - including passwords, photos, emails, etc. Attackers could also use the vulnerability to put malware, ransomware, etc. on your device. However, for an attack to happen, the attacker would have to be on the same WiFi network as you.
Emergency first aid equipment on campus
Recent changes to emergency first aid equipment provided on campus:
Bleed Control kits (containing gloves, dressings, and tourniquet) are now installed across campus inside Automated External Defibrillator (AED) cabinets. These kits are being implemented to improve capability to deal with mass trauma and as identified through the armed assailant emergency exercise this past June.
Instructions for use of the Bleed Control kits are now provided in Standard First Aid training courses.
Additionally, Mass Casualty Care kits are in the process of being installed in areas of high traffic on main campus, including the Olympic Oval — Kinesiology buildings link, Taylor Family Digital Library (main level) and MacEwan Student Centre. More information will be available on UCalgary's Campus Security and Emergency Management websites when these kits are in place.
