Hub spams students’ inboxes with emails

Scott Nussbaum

Students and faculty enrolled in a section of Advanced Topics in Computer Science Honors and  in one of last year’s AP Physics B classes received spam emails from the Hub from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.

The Hub sent each account enrolled in either class section upwards of 100 emails, each one containing a notification of a blog update.

“It is unknown what the root cause of the feed was so the problem can not be blocked [from happening again],” mathematics and computer science teacher Jason Fieldman said before he found the bug. “However, once the problem was identified, it was easy to fix.”
