Helping those in Texas in their time of need / Avoiding Hurricane Harvey Scammers

Be on the lookout for scammers trying to capitalize on the historic flooding in Texas. Be cautious of unsolicited emails trying to make you a victim to malicious cyber activity seeking to capitalize on Hurricane Harvey. Users are advised to exercise caution in handling any email with subject line, attachments, or hyperlinks related to Hurricane Harvey, even if it appears to originate from a trusted source. Fraudulent emails will often contain links or attachments that direct users to phishing or malware-infected websites. Emails requesting donations from duplicitous charitable organizations commonly appear after major natural disasters.

You may also see an increased level of malicious activity around other phishing emails in an effort to entice their targets to reveal login credentials. It’s always better to double check anything that looks suspicious and if you fall victim don’t hide it or try to deal with it yourself. Immediately report it to your local IT team and allow the team help you deal with it.

If you're looking to help our Friends and Neighbors suffering in Texas, there are plenty of resources available where you can help - here is a list of different resources that will actually help those in need, via NPR.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Client Access Licenses (CALs) are discontinued and end-of-life as of 3/31/17. Remember, you can obtain Windows Server 2016 CALs for use with previous versions of Windows Server. As both User and Device CALs are backwards-compatible, there is no downside to obtaining Windows Server 2016 CALs with Windows Server 2012 R2 OEM. Obtaining Windows Server 2016 CALs benefits your customer because Windows Server requires current CALs so your customer will have the Server 2016 CALs should they obtain Windows Server 2016 Standard or Datacenter in the future.
