RUG: Don’t worry about Citrix, you can still work from home
Last week, on Friday, the National Cyber Security Centre (NSCS), acting on advice issued by the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD), called for a shutdown of all Citrix systems.
The Lower House, Schiphol, the Vrije Universiteit, and the University of Leiden all did so.
Working from home
The RUG uses the Citrix Workspace App, which enables people to log onto the university network. The university doesn’t use the affected servers, which host Citrix ACD and Citrix Gateway. Spokesperson Jorien Bakker says that staff need not worry.
Last week, on Tuesday, the RUG suffered IT problems, resulting in 14,000 people being unable to log in to their accounts. These problems were caused by a technical malfunction in the login system.
