Virus Information

Virus Repair Procedure and Policy

All computers connecting to the Mills College network need to have the latest virus protection software and the latest security updates and patches for the operating system and applications. 

On average, Mills College has 500+ students and faculty and staff using our wireless networking service each day. If infected with a virus or a worm, any one of these computers can disrupt services on campus.

Information Technology Services (ITS) staff members will contact students, faculty, and staff individually when there is evidence of a virus or a worm on any computer connected to the Mills network. A message is sent to the user of the computer suspected of being infected and the computer's network access is blocked until the user has worked with ITS staff to address the problem. All other services (email, class materials, etc.) will remain available using other campus computers.

Please see Microsoft's Safety and Security Center's page, Six tips to help you stay safer online, for advice on how to protect your devices, information, and yourself on the Internet. 

Mills College offers free virus protection software for students, faculty, and staff with personally owned computers that use our network. Please visit the following web page to download the appropriate software for your computer. You will be required to enter your Mills username and password to download this software.

For assistance, please contact the Information Technology HelpDesk at 510.430.2005, email helpdesk@mills.edu, or submit a request at helpdesk.mills.edu.
