The coronavirus threatens those who need care the most and strains networks providing help
More than 38,000 German university students were asked to stand in line to receive new passwords after the network at Justus Liebig University suffered a malware attack. Beginning Dec. 8, university officials at the school just north of Frankfurt, Germany, took down the school network and began scanning each individual computer on campus for malware. As a precautionary measure, the school reset every password for every email account issued by the school. German law prevented the university from emailing out new passwords to students’ personal email accounts. That meant the school had to issue new passwords on slips of paper during a massive five-day exercise concluding Dec. 20.
