Hackers have been very successful at tricking K-Staters into giving away their eID password -- in 2009 more than 430 K-Staters replied to phishing e-mails, sending their eID passwords to criminals who used them to log into K-State's e-mail and send thousands of spam e-mails. As K-State's IT security team, Help Desk and IT support staff have worked to prevent and slow such attacks, hackers' techniques have evolved accordingly.
After serving in the office of K-State's president for the past 24 years, Charles Reagan will return to the faculty at the end of this academic year.
