Phishing – don’t get caught out

There has recently been an increased amount of phishing attacks and compromised email accounts affecting staff and students.

Please be vigilant against suspicious email activity all year round, and especially at the moment. You may receive an email asking for your personal credentials or for you to visit a website and fill in details. This may even come from a University compromised account.

Anyone who has, or thinks they may have mistakenly fallen victim to this phishing attack and given out their username and password should change their password immediately by visiting IT accounts.

Visit the IT Network blog for tips on how to avoid these attacks.
