More myUFV web portal services were brought back online today. Student and staff emails are now online.

Limited web service functionality was brought back on Monday morning to prepare for winter term registration.

The services, suspended Oct. 31, will continue to be brought back online in phases. Currently, tax forms are not accessible.

On Oct. 30, UFV learned that a hacker had obtained 29 students’ personal information, and threatened to release thousands more if a $30,000 ransom wasn’t met.

UFV changed the myUFV web portal password requirements, and asked students to update their passwords. Previously, the web portal enforced six-pin passcodes. It now requires a password eight to 12 characters long, containing a combination of lowercase letters, uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters.

According to a November 6 news release, UFV has not seen any further exposure of student personal information.
