Another round of phishing email

Posted on April 22nd, 2009 by

This morning many of our users woke up to find their inbox had been invaded by a number of email messages asking them to verify their gustavus.edu email account.

This is just a quick reminder to say that no one associated with Gustavus sent that message.  An easy test to do is to read the message and if it asks you for your password, it is a phishing email and not from us.  Please don’t reply to it.

Gustavus accounts are sent hundreds of phishing attempts every week.  The one being seen by a large number of our users this morning is just one example of what is being sent every day.

As always, if you have any questions, please call the Technology Helpline at x6111.
