The importance of computer security is becoming more widely known
throughout the Stanford campus after the MS Blaster and Gaobot worms in
the last academic year.
However, as evident from the large number of campus computer users
affected by these internet worms, many students, faculty and staff still
do not realize how important it is to take preventive measures to keep
their computers free from virus and hacker attacks. We hope that this site
will give you a sense of the severity and complexity of the computer
security problem at Stanford, as well as inspire you to think how you can
contribute to the solution, either as a computer user, a system
administrator or as an educator.
