Hola VPN traffic is blocked across campus from today 31 July 2019
We've received a growing number of abuse notifications for Warwick computer (IP addresses). After investigation, we found that computers running Hola have been compromised and used to send out phishing and spam emails.
Computers running the Hola client could be unknowingly used to:
- download illegal material
- maliciously attack our network
- send out phishing and spam emails
Therefore we are blocking all traffic generated by the Hola VPN applications in use across Warwick.
