USB hacking devices found on Carleton computers

Carleton University is increasing its digital security after finding six USB keystroke-loggers in Carleton classroom computers. Changes include daily and more frequent checks of school computers for keystroke loggers in the future. According to Geoff Leboldus, the information security manager with Information Technology Services at Carleton, USB keyloggers can capture anything typed on a computer. “Everything you type on a machine with a keyboard logger is no longer private,” Leboldus said. Leboldus said a key logger contains a transcription of everything typed, including usernames and passwords for Carleton’s website and other accounts. In an email, Allan Burns, the director of the Department of University Safety, said they passed the issue onto the Ottawa Police, who are currently investigating who’s responsible […]

Carleton exceeds snow removal budget this year

Carleton went over its snow removal budget this year as Ottawa received more snowfall, although it’s unclear how much more it cost. Ottawa received 300 centimetres of snowfall this winter, according to Environment Canada. It increased from 203.3 centimetres in 2015-16 and 194.8 centimetres in 2014-15. Carleton’s budget for summer landscaping and snow removal is $600,000 annually, according to Kevin Gallinger, Carleton’s director of maintenance services. Cedar Springs Limited (CSL), an outside company, does the work. Gallinger said the budget accounts for 254 centimetres of snow, and the school pays extra for further snow removal. Carleton went over the budget in 2017, he said. But the university isn’t sure how much it will cost them this year, Gallinger said. “We […]

RRRA’s promise to replace Mac Daddy’s “unlikely”

The Rideau River Residence Association (RRRA) executive promised during their past two elections to replace the Mac Daddy’s in Oasis, but increased sales may make it less likely. Current RRRA President Hyder Naqvi said his team wanted to replace the Mac Daddy’s last year, and the promise was again part of his re-election campaign this year. “I would love to find a replacement for Mac Daddy’s, so right now we are in talks [with the university] regarding this change,” Naqvi said. Naqvi said RRRA is in the early stages of the process, and that he is meeting with the university on March 23, which “will determine how we are moving forward with this.” Aramark, a food services company, runs Carleton’s […]
