Beware of eMail phishing schemes

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Beware of eMail phishing schemes. TU does not ask users to verify account names/passwords.  Several have reported requests for this information over the past few days as part of an apparent phishing scheme.  Do not respond!

As we begin the spring term, please exercise caution.  Our standard procedure in response to a computer security incident is to use eMail to invite you to visit the Computer Security Response Team site which is linked from the University home page.  We do not provide URLs in any such request since the text presentation of a URL link and the actual associated link may be two quite different things.

Dale Schoenefeld, VP & CIO, for the Computer Security Response Team.
