UH warns of potential security threat

Posted: Updated:

The University of Hawaii at Manoa is warning its campus of a possible cyber security threat.

A keylogger was found at a computer lab on campus last Friday.

When it's plugged into a computer a keylogger can record everything that's typed including confidential information like passwords.

A "College of Social Sciences" email alert said the logger was found in a Saunders hall computer lab. The school says anyone who logged onto a computer in the lab in the last few weeks should change their passwords.
