Phishing emails – don’t get caught out


November 18th, 2015

This morning the IT Service Desk was alerted to a Phishing attack on staff and student email addresses.

A Phishing campaign is an email that prompts you to provide personal details or log-in credentials so the attacker can shut down or falsely use your online accounts (banking, email, social media etc). The University will never contact you in this way and will never ask for you to provide your username, password or bank details.
