Another UW-directed phishing attempt is making the rounds, this one with the subject line " Notice: Pending mails from *********".

There's actually been a fair number of phishing emails floating around asking for your Office 365 credentials so beware of any you see.

If you happened to enter your credentials on any bogus sites, let us know ASAP so that we can change your passwords ASAP and try to confirm if there was any logins that are unexpected.

PsychoPy on Nexus stations in Psychology has been upgraded to 1.85.3b. If you are developing or running programs on laptops or elsewhere, stick to the same version. We'll typically only do updates on this package between terms.
UW has a site license to RefWorks for reference management. The Write-n-Cite plugins are already installed in Word on Nexus stations.

We also have automated deployment of Mendeley available for Nexus stations. If you would like that on any machines, just send the name of the machine (the yellow sticker on the top).
