IT-dept @UiB: we're doing a #security sprint, requiring 2FA, firewall, #VPN and such! Also IT-dept @UiB: to access your email etc through VPN, please download this shell script and run it as root. 🤦‍♀️

Well, at least you get the shell script from a secured website that you have to log in to through a totally unfamiliar login form instead of the usual Feide SSO.

Well, *at least* I can (reasonably) hope I didn't just give my username and password to a random guy who managed to insert a fake record into @UiB's DNS :)

Change your password every 3 months because reasons?

Actually, it's only once a year. Thankfully, since it takes at least half an hour to help my father through the process. (And also, since there's always a day or two without email after my password expires – but that not really a bad thing)

Also, for fun, @UiB's VPN setup will: route all IPv4 and IPv6 traffic through itself (it takes over the entire internet) – but it doesn't really do IPv6 (??), so it just drops those packets. Fortunately, it seems emails and such do get sent once IPv6 times out...
