Systems infected with virus' or worms pose a threat to other systems on the internet and jeopardize both data and the ability of people to work or conduct business within and beyond UCLA. Failure to take decisive steps to limit a systems ability to infect other systems exposes the School and the University to criticism, network isolation from key networks and possible legal action.
When you are requesting your machine be connected to the network it is your responsibility to make sure that your machine is as secure as possible.
If a compromised system holds personal data (e.g. Social Security number or credit card number) you must follow the procedure in UCLA Policy 420 to avoid violating California State Law.
