CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – Austin Peay State University continues to recover from this week’s ransomware attack and plans to proceed with final exams beginning Monday.

Students, faculty and staff can resume using their university computers, including accessing the network, which includes plugging network cables into their computers, according to a news release Saturday night.

OneStop, PC computer labs (with the exception of computer labs that have VDI computers), and classroom computers are now available, the release said. The library has a limited number of PC computers available for student use. Click here for a list of campus computer labs.

“The campus community is asked to remain vigilant and on high alert, particularly for phishing emails,” the release said.

Some reminders about email:

  • Do not open emails you are uncertain are legitimate.
  • When in doubt, mark the email using your Phish alert.
  • Never open attachments unless you are certain it is from a legitimate source.
  • Never click links in email unless you know they are valid links from a source you trust.

Anyone experiencing issues with email or authentication should contact the GovsTech Help Desk at 931-221-4357 or via email govstech@apsu.edu and a ticket will be created on their behalf, the release said. Additionally, Office of Information Technology staff will be available at the Morgan University Center from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. for the next several days to assist users with questions.
