Data Vulnerability in MoveOn in 2015

 Dear students,

We have been informed that there was a data vulnerability of students’ last names – first names on the MoveOn platform which our University uses for mobility in the academic year 2015. The vulnerability was on the system provider’s side, not on the university’s. It has been identified and permanently fixed, and ensured not to reoccur in the future. This announcement is only for your information, and there is no action necessary on your side.

The tutoring program has been one of the highlights since I arrived in Vaasa. Everything from all their help at the students' arrival day to all these events the tutors create/share are just terrific.
