Problematic Password Campaign

Our security team has identified several ONU accounts with passwords that have been compromised or found in various security breaches. As a result, we are sending out emails to the affected users. Below is an example email:


Your ONU account has been identified as having known cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Typically, this means a password associated with your email address has been published on the internet and is known to criminals. If you have not updated in a while, changing your account password is a very good place to start!  You may receive further instructions in future communication.
