Computer security at UCSF is taken seriously. The 1988 infestation of a computer "worm" into several UCSF computers, as well as hundreds of other computers throughout the U.S., made us acutely aware of the need for tight security. There are also constant attempts to 'break into' campus computers. For this reason the policy has been adopted that ABSOLUTELY NO USER WILL BE PERMITTED TO SHARE HIS/HER COMPUTER ACCOUNT WITH ANOTHER PERSON. Users found sharing their account with another individual will have their account deactivated and their IRC access privileges withdrawn immediately. Users found maliciously damaging or destroying another user's data or system programs, or using their account to illegally access another computer system will be referred to police for prosecution under section 502 of the California Penal Code.
Your account is your personal responsibility and you will be held liable for its misuse by another individual.
Due to legal concerns and the very real possibility of introducing and/or spreading computer viruses, you are not permitted to download or upload applications to any IRC input/output device without first receiving approval of IRC personnel. At no time are you to disable the computers virus protection software.
Your Conduct in the IRC
The IRC was designed for pharmacy students, faculty and selected staff and is available to you for the purpose of learning. All work you conduct therein must be reliant on the electronic facilities available. When that work is completed, we ask that you leave. Please: no meetings, no social gatherings and use of the facility as a room for studying for exams, etc except during Finals week.
At no time you are to make IRC possible for anyone who does not fall into the three categories listed above to use its facilities. (You may, of course, bring someone into the room briefly to demonstrate its facilities.) We ask that you always be alert to the fact that the IRC is a multipurpose room. If a videoconference is being conducted, or instruction is being presented, etc., we ask that you speak softly, change workstations if necessary, and do not interfere with the rooms audio/visual equipment.
