Malicious software (including computer viruses and ransomware), like a chameleon, is good at disguise. Hidden behind a harmless looking email or webpage, it will attack your PC or mobile device once you fall prey to it. Unfortunately, users sometimes hesitate to seek help when they suspect their PCs to be compromised. And while they consider what to do next, their PCs may already infect others, or open up a “backdoor” for hackers to target other computers on the network. The result can be disastrous. Hence, if you suspect your PC to be hacked or infected, please report the incident AT ONCE to the CSC Help Desk at 3442 7658 or to email@example.com (with full email header). You can help yourself, keep the University safe, and possibly even allow us to catch a hacker in the act.
Please refer to ”Safe IT at CityU” on best practice for staying on-line.
