Blackboard Learn Maintenance - October 2 & October 3

In order to address some technical difficulties with Blackboard Learn, SUNY ITEC will be performing maintenance on our system.  Based on the urgency to get the issues resolved, Blackboard Learn will be unavailable from  3am – 7am, Tuesday 10/02 and will also be unavailable between 4am – 7am, Wednesday 10/03.

Once the system is available, Blackboard Learn users may need to clear their cache and restart their browsers. Users who continue to experience issues when the site becomes available should open a ticket with Open SUNY Support Services Help Desk or call (844) 673-6786.

We thank you for your patience.

Beware of “Meeting Notification” phishing email

Several people on campus have received a phishing e-mail similar to the one below. The message contains the subject “Meeting Notification” and prompts the recipient to click on what appears to be a Buffalo State link. This is a phishing email designed to steal your account information!

If you received this message, or one similar to this, you are advised to delete the message immediately. Never click on hyperlinks or open attachments contained within the message, and never reply to these types of messages! 
If you received this message, or one like it, and mistakenly clicked on the link, it is imperative that you change your password immediately!  Clicking on the link may have no noticeable effect, but may result in your e-mail account or computer being compromised. 

To change your password, visit the Buffalo State homepage > click MyBuffState > click For Faculty and Staff > and click the Change Password link under Support

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Support Desk during our regular business hours.
