Security Alert: LogMeIn Forced Password Reset

It has come to the attention of Fordham University’s Information Security Office that LogMeIn, Fordham’s remote desktop access tool, might force a reset of your LogMeIn password.

This is due to the recent theft and subsequent release of passwords to various sites such as LinkedIn, Tumblr, and MySpace. Please note, this is a precautionary measure taken by LogMeIn. There are no current sources that indicate LogMeIn has been breached.

Further information from LogMeIn can be found at

We continue to advise that you not reuse the password for your fordham.edu account for any other accounts and never reuse passwords for any accounts in general. Attackers are aware of the propensity for password reuse, and will try to leverage these username and password combinations to log in to your accounts.

Fordham IT will NEVER ask you for your username and password or ask you to click any links to validate or verify your account or password. If you receive questionable or suspicious emails, contact IT Customer Care and allow the University Information Security Office (UISO) to validate the legitimacy of these emails.
