NEWS:

E-MAIL PHISHING SCAMS WARNING:

ITS-Network Services has been battling new e-mail phishing scams targeting UNI users. Examples of these new phishing messages and more information on these scams is at http://www.uni.edu/its/security/phishing.html. ITS constantly adds new rules to its Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus servers to drop these types of messages, however, new versions appear frequently. Phishing e-mails ask users to verify their UNI e-mail account information by replying to the e-mail with their e-mail username, e-mail password and other personal information. It also warns that if the account owner refuses to update his or her account information he or she will lose the account permanently. UNI will never request such information from users via e-mail.
Never share your password for any system with anyone and never reply to any e-mail message of which you are suspicious. Instead, forward the suspicious e-mail message to phishing@uni.edu.
