Not an April Fool’s joke. Saturday, April 1, 2017, many UA employees received phishing emails with the subject titles “Dear UA User” and “Ua.edu New Upgrading”
These emails are phishing attempts designed to steal usernames and passwords, and to possibly infect your system with malicious code. Please remember that The University of Alabama does not send out these types of messages. If you haven’t already, please delete the emails.
If you did receive one or both of these emails, and you did click on the links to provide your username and password, please promptly change your myBama password and activate DUO at duo.ua.edu. Please contact the IT Service Desk with questions and concerns 205-348-5555 or email@example.com.
Below are screenshots of the emails.
