Cyber attack - Current news and information

Dear students, prospective students, and Furtwangen University employees,

Unfortunately our IT infrastructure has suffered a hacker attack. As a result, the entire IT infrastructure of the university is currently unavailable. This includes email communication and everything for which you require your university login to access (also from home). Our website and all central services including the learning platform FELIX and the libraries are also affected.

The news bulletins below are ordered chronologically.
We will keep you informed here of any new developments.

Best regards
The university management
