UB Login Page Phishing 11-07-2014

A website impersonating the UB Login page is attempting to steal UBITnames and passwords.

Red flags: How you can tell it is a fake

  1. The beginning of the URL, up to the first forward slash, does not exactly match "shibboleth.buffalo.edu"

I already clicked the links. What should I do?

  • If clicked on the link, but did not enter your password, please check that your computer security or anti virus program is on and up to date.

If you have any questions, contact your local IT support or the CIT Help Desk.
