Phishing reminder

Staff are reminded to be on their guard against phishing - fraudulent attempts to gain University log-in details.

Messages asking staff to log in to University systems should be treated with suspicion, particularly any message that contains a link to a log-in page.

Beware 'log in' emails

Fraudsters regularly send out emails claiming there are problems with an account or log-in details, asking the recipient to log in to the account to fix the supposed problem.

Their aim is to take the victim to a fake log-in page, where they capture log-in details that can be used to access the genuine account.

Instead of following links in messages, staff are reminded to use a browser to navigate to the genuine log-in page.

Further advice on dealing with phishing attacks is available on the Information Services website.
