UNH IT has been made aware of a large list of email address and password combinations that have been publicly posted.  These publicly posted credentials appear to be an aggregation of data from several breaches at third-party companies.  We are alerting the UNH community because this list includes UNH email addresses.
 
We are currently analyzing the list to identify all active UNH users whose email addresses are impacted.  Active UNH users whose accounts are on this list will be contacted and required to change their passwords.
