UBIT SECURITY ALERT, 8/29/2017

UB Login Phish - Do not click 'UB Alert: Your account has been queued for deletion' email

An email supposedly from the "System Ethics and Compliance Officer at UB" warns that your email account will be deactivated if you do not confirm your account in time.

Red flags: How you can tell it is a fake

 
  1. The URL is not a buffalo.edu web site.
  2. The email is not signed by anyone working at UB or an actual department here.
