Loaner Laptops Are Available
Medgar Evers College is committed to providing students with academic continuity, despite interruptions due to COVID-19. To ensure that students are able to continue their education and complete assignments, loaner laptops are available for any student who does not have access to a personal computer off campus.
Interested students must email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to secure a laptop. All requests must include student’s first and last name, 8-digit EMPL ID number, and telephone number. In addition, a MEC student identification card will be required at pickup.
Students who have access to a personal computer off-campus are strongly encouraged to reserve use of loaner laptops for students who do not have such access. In addition, all students are required to maintain a distance of at least six (6) feet between themselves and other members of the college community during their visit to campus.
Inquiries about the laptop retrieval process can be directed to the Office of Student Affairs (email@example.com).

A malicious website is pretending to be the live map for Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Cases by John Hopkins University and is directing users to visit a malware website. Visiting this website infects the user’s computer or mobile device with the AZORult trojan, an information-stealing program which can exfiltrate a variety of sensitive data from the user’s computer. It is likely being spread via infected email attachments, malicious online advertisements, and social engineering. Anyone searching the internet for a coronavirus map could unwittingly navigate to this malicious website and have their data compromised.
Please be extra vigilant while accessing your email and browsing the internet.
