UBIT SECURITY ALERT, 1/27/2014

UB-Specific Phish

An email claiming to be from the CIT Help Desk is attempting to trick the UB community into giving away their account information.

Red flags: How you can tell it is a fake

  1. The email claims to come from the Help Desk and advises that inactive accounts will be purged. The University never purges inactive email accounts. 
  2. The message threatens dire consequences.
  3. The website they ask you to go to is not a buffalo.edu website (look carefully!)

I already clicked the links. What should I do?
