UBIT SECURITY ALERT, 12/18/2017

UB Login Phish - Do not click 'Ticket Number:135863' email 12-18-17

An email supposedly from "Service Desk" is supposedly telling you that your ticket has been closed.  The link to "Your incident" attempts to steal your UBIT credentials.

Red flags: How you can tell it is a fake

 
  1. Notice the email "From" address is not @buffalo.edu
  2. Hovering over URL shows it is not a buffalo.edu site.
  3. Generic signature not used by our UBIT Help Center.

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.

I did not click on the links. What should I do?

Delete the email.
