OIT received questions concerning a Phishing email sent to over 200 individuals. It is an attempt to steal usernames and passwords.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?
If you received this email, please delete it. If you answered this email, please change your email password immediately. If you need assistance changing your email password, please contact the IT Service Desk at 348-5555.
HOW CAN I TELL THIS IS A FAKE?
The “From” address seems to come from “ [at]Bridgeton.k12.nj.us” which is not a UA address (ending in …ua.edu).
There is no reason why an administrator email would come from outside the University of Alabama.
Always remember, the University of Alabama, will never ask you for your password in an email or email you a link that request your password.
