Starting at 5 a.m. Tuesday, May 16, University of Oregon websites will be temporarily unavailable. The UO homepage will be the first site closed for rolling maintenance, according to Around the O.
In total, about 150 websites will be offline for approximately 30 minutes between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. Anyone trying to access a site while it is being worked on will encounter a maintenance page. Canvas, DuckWeb and websites hosted through blogs.uoregon.edu will not be affected, Patrick Chinn, associate CIO for Customer Experience wrote in an email to the Emerald.
Information Services is working on implementing regular web maintenance throughout the year.
This week’s updates are not directly related to the WannaCry malware attacks that began on May 12, Chinn said. The university’s information security team is aware of the malware and has taken steps to protect university systems. Chinn advised any students who are running any version of Windows older than Windows 10 to run an update as soon as possible.
