About IATH


IATH's web server was hacked on Wednesday 9/11: there's no evidence that the date was anything more than a coincidence. We discovered the break-in a week later, and the server was offline from about 6:30 pm Wednesday, 9/18 to about noon on Sunday, 9/22, while the operating system was restored and while problems caused by that restoration were resolved. We regret the inconvenience this outage has caused for the many users of IATH projects, and we would like to take this opportunity to publicly rebuke the hackers, whose illegitimate and illegal use of IATH resources cost the University hundreds of staff hours, and interrupted legitimate educational use of those resources for thousands of students, faculty, and others.
