Cryptocurrency mining should not be performed using U-M resources

The U-M Safe Computing group recently sent a notice to the University community that U-M resources should not be used for cryptocurrency mining. Outside of faculty-approved research and coursework, it is an inappropriate use of information technology resources, a violation of U-M policy, and potentially illegal. CAEN would like to remind the College of Engineering community that this includes running cryptomining processes on computers in CAEN Labs, and remote services like Windows Remote Desktop and the Linux Login Servers. For more information, refer to the U-M Safe Computing article, NOTICE: Do not use U-M resources for cryptocurrency mining, or contact CAEN with any questions.
