Malware Detection and Removal

Malware, short for malicious software, is software used to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. It can appear in the form of code, scripts, active content, and other software. Malware is a general term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile or intrusive software.

Antivirus and security software

Lehigh strongly recommends that all users protect their computer by installing a recommended Antivirus program.

Faculty/Staff Lehigh-Owned Computers

The Lehigh VPN (Virtual Private Network)

A VPN is a network system that makes a secure connection between a client computer at a remote location (such as a personal machne at home or off-campus) and a protected, private network (such as Lehigh's campus network) over an otherwise insecure public network (such as the Internet). Data passed over the public network is encapsulated and encrypted so that it can't be intercepted or tampered with.

Lehigh Computing Accounts

The primary method for managing access to University computer resources is the Lehigh Computing Account. This account provides access to numerous secure resources based on each user's unique relationship to the University, and must be opened before it can be used.

Media Classrooms Sites and Hours

Library & Technology Services provides technology-enabled classrooms and public computing sites. See the Classroom Technology and Public Computers site for information on rooms.

Additionally, see the Digital Media Studio site for information on the Digital Media Studio location.

Software

A variety of software is licensed by the university for use by faculty, students, and staff. The installation utility is role-based and location-aware so that users can see only the titles they are eligible to download and install based on their role at the University, as well as the location where they want to run it. This could be on-campus, off-campus or even a specific building on campus.

G Suite -- Google's Online Productivity Software

By partnering with Google, Lehigh has access to a managed version of their full suite of online productivity applications.  Formerly known as 'Google Apps', the suite includes:

University-wide Communication with Lehigh Portal

The Lehigh University Portal provides secure, customizable access to a wide variety of university information specific to all types of Lehigh community members from applicants to new students, returning students, parents, faculty and staff.

Email

Standard Lehigh Computing Accounts include a Lehigh email address (username@lehigh.edu). While the university still operates a local 'legacy' email server on campus, most accounts are hosted by Google within the G Suite system. Remaining legacy email accounts are at mail.lehigh.edu which can be accessed either via the web interface or a standalone IMAP program, such as Mozilla Thunderbird.
