Disclaimer

This software will periodically contact servers in the Carnegie Mellon University Computing Services infrastructure to check for updates and configuration changes. In the process of doing so, the software will send one of two sets of information, depending on the download option (Reporting vs. Non-Reporting) you choose. Information will only be sent if/when you are connected to the Carnegie Mellon University network or via VPN.

Community Reporting
This option reports the following data:

  • System platform (Mac, Windows)
  • The name of the computer (hostname)
  • Client software version
  • All IP addresses currently in use by the computer
  • All ethernet (MAC) addresses of the computer
  • Date of the last contact with the server
  • Date of the last scan
  • Match counts by file type
  • Remediation action taken

Community Non-Reporting
This option reports the following data:

  • System platform (Mac, Windows)

Note: The ISO recommends selecting the Community Reporting option for CMU-owned computers that are used to access enterprise data like employee data, student data, and donor data. The additional information will be used to monitor personally identifiable information (PII) disclosure risk, assist community members in reducing PII disclosure risk, and optimize incident response processes.
