11/9/15 (Blackboard) You have two messages from your faculty admin!

UA Information Security received a phishing report, asking recipients to click on a link in order to read two messages.  Two items of particular note in this email:


  1. There is an image that users are asked to download, and
  2. If you hover over the hyperlink, the link does not match what is represented in type.

If you receive this email, please delete it from your inbox.  If you clicked on the link, downloaded the image, or responded to the email in any way, please contact your local IT Support or the 24/7 IT Support Center (626-8324) as soon as possible.
