UBIT SECURITY ALERT, 1/23/2014

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, but the actual email address is not from @buffalo.edu
  2. The website they ask you to go to is not a buffalo.edu website
  3. The signature block doesn't mention a UB department or phone number

I already clicked the links. What should I do?

DATE ACTIVE:
