Update: LockDown Browser for Windows, version 2.1.1.05, has been released. This release addresses a false positive with AVG and Avast virus detection software and security enhancements.
Existing installs of LockDown Browser will be auto-updated shortly. To obtain the latest version (2.1.1.05) use the “Check for Update” feature or run the full installation program.
There is a known issue with Respondus Lockdown Browser for Windows for users running AVAST or AVG anti-virus software.
Both anti-virus products are currently being incorrectly detected by LockDown Browser as a blocked application. They are working to create a fix to correct this “false positive,” and this fix will take a few weeks.
Respondus advises students running either product that they will need to temporarily disable Avast/AVG when needing to take an exam that requires LockDown Browser. Once the exam is submitted, they can enable Avast/AVG again. Alternatively, they can disable Avast/AVG, but utilize a different anti-virus product on their computer until the fix is available.
The password sync issue has been resolved. Passwords are updating in all systems at this time.
We are currently experiencing some issues with password changes not synchronizing to all systems.
OIT is investigating the issue and we hope to resolve the issue as soon as possible. During this time, we ask that you refrain from changing your password.
We will update this post when we have an update or when the issue has been resolved.
The connectivity issues between AT&T and FAU appear to be improving and FAU services should be generally available to users on AT&T internet connections at this time. We are still seeing small amounts of packet loss, however, affecting both AT&T and Comcast. These disruptions appear to be the result of several fiber cuts across south Florida causing congestion at ISPs.
AT&T internet users are currently experiencing issues connecting to FAU. Other internet service providers that utilize AT&T connectivity may also be affected. As a result of these issues, some users will experience dropped traffic, slow-loading web pages, and other degradation of performance. We will provide an update when we have more information.
