UBIT SECURITY ALERT, 2/21/2017

UB Login Phish - Do not click 'Quick Notice From University Of Buffalo' email

An email claiming to come from the University Of Buffalo Administrative IT Team Service regarding "an email service upgrade" asks you to "update your details in order to ensure 100% service of your account", but really is trying to obtain your UBITName and password. 

Red flags: How you can tell it is a fake

  1. The email did not come from a University at Buffalo email address.    
  2. Poor grammar/spelling was used.
  3. Hovering on the link shows it goes to a non BUFFALO.EDU website.

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.
