Faculty, staff, and student computers can be infected by computer viruses spread via e-mail, downloads, exchanging files, and over the Internet. Goucher College has taken steps to protect the campus community against computer viruses. Goucher College computers in campus classrooms, labs, and offices that log on to the Goucher College network are automatically updated with anti-virus software on a daily basis. Antivirus software is being used to scan all inbound and outbound e-mail messages for computer viruses, malicious attachments, and to stop e-mail-borne virus outbreaks via the Goucher College E-mail Server.

Residential students and off-campus computers should insure that anti-virus software is installed and is updated regularly to prevent the infection and propagation of computer viruses.

Goucher College provides residential students and off-campus computers with the ability to download anti-virus software and anti-virus updates.
