Phishing Emails from Campus Execs

Many UA employees have received phishing emails with unusual messages that appear to be from the email accounts of UA executives or vice presidents; however, they are actually phishing emails from malicious actors. The emails attempt to engage the recipient into an email-only discussion, and some emails include requests to purchase gift cards.

If you have received an email like this, please delete the email. Additionally, if you are not a DUO user, please activate your DUO account at duo.ua.edu. Remember the red flags of phishing, and always check the “from” email address on suspicious messages. All official UA email should originate from a @ua.edu email address.

If you did receive this email and you have questions, please contact the IT Service Desk at 205-348-5555 or itsd@ua.edu.
