University of Oulu, 2019

Changes into use of network drives in the VPN portal

Because of the vulnerability that has been found in the Pulse Connect Secure, some changes into use of the VPN portal (https://sa.oulu.fi) have been made in the university’s ICT services.

The processing of files through the VPN portal has been prevented for the present for information security reasons.

  • The change is temporary and touches you only if you try to deal with the Windows disk shares of the university through the VPN portal with www-browsers.
  • The changes are valid until the software supplier publishes the correction.

Your home directory (K drive) and the network drives are still available on Windows remote desktops and also on your computer if you use Open VPN Connect or Pulse Secure as your VPN client.
