Safe Computing

File Sharing Software

Use of any university resource such as computers (hardware or software), network connections, servers, routers, facsimile machines, copy machines and other electronic equipment by any university constituent (faculty, student, staff or general public) to circumvent legitimate copyright protections or illegally access, copy or disseminate copyrighted material is unacceptable. 7

Unauthorized applications such as file sharing programs run the risk of exposure to unauthorized access. This type of software may contain "malware," such as spyware or other programs that compromise security and privacy.
