1/27/14 VPN Access

UA Information Security received a report of an email that appears to be from the University Library, but it is a cleverly disguised hoax.  The URL in the email leads to a page that is a replica of the UA's VPN login page, but actually leads to a different page than what the link displays.

If you receive this email, please delete it from your inbox.  If you received it and entered your credentials onto the page, please change your UA NetID password immediately. 

 

Email text: 

Dear User,
Your VPN access will expire soon, therefore you must reactivate it immediately or it will be closed automatically. If you intend to use this service in future, you must take action at once!
To reactive your access, simply visit the university VPN page and login with your account then begin your secure session.
