VU Important: Announcement

Published On:  Sunday, December 6, 2020

Recently, Virtual University of Pakistan launched a new version of LMS with a new user interface and intuitive features. However, some functionality and features have been presented differently for ease of use and student activity tracking. Like any new version of a software some features are liked by users and others take time getting used to. The ICT teams are actively looking into any complaints and evaluating feedback in order to make it even better and more functional.

At the same time, unfortunately, some miscreants started generating severe BruteForce and DDoS cyber-attacks on LMS to make it inaccessible for obvious reasons. The ICT teams are continuously taking measures to mitigate these attacks on our websites and will not rest till the issue is resolved. We regret the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.

The University authorities have identified these sources and gathered the requisite information, which is now being sent to FIA Cyber Crimes wing for further action against these culprits.

Furthermore, to compensate students with their graded activities the university extended the deadlines for different graded activities as deemed appropriate, so that students could make their submissions.

Thank You.

Why not use WAF ( L7 Firewall) instead of crying over to FIA ? if university cant buy one atleast get DDOS prevention services from providers like Akamai, which is cheap way to defend against any attack which is affecting Students activities, Think outside the box, "getting attacked and complaining is not a solution"

the only draw back i found in new LMS page is 

there is no MY TO DO LIST available..

which was so handy to see the upcoming assignments and quizzes

they should add that feature
