Four separate messages were sent targeting the UB community. Anyone who received these emails should delete them immediately—do not click any links or open any attachments.
The titles of the phishing emails are:
One involved a supposed email change, one involved a "new" sign in from an iPhone, one involved supposed account termination, and one involved a mandatory change to two factor authentication.
These emails are now included, along with previous phishing attempts, on the list of IT Security Alerts on the UBIT website. The list also includes indicators that can be used to distinguish a phishing attempt from a genuine email.
These emails contained several common indicators of a phishing attempt, including:
If you entered your password, change it immediately - go to Changing Your Password.
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. You can download Symantec Endpoint Protection anti virus/firewall software for free from the UBIT website.
