Alert memo sent in error
Those on campus on the first day of spring break using university computers may have received an alert memo warning them to take precaution of an armed intruder.
Moments later a second message, sent via text alert this time too, stated hat "no emergency or immediate threat" existed and to disregard the earlier message which was due to a system error.
"IT was performing a routine check and somehow the alert message was launched," USF Media and Public Relations Coordinator Adam Freeman said. "It was a system error that was immediately cleared."
