Recent Scams Article: Bad Guys Go Nuclear

Posted on Friday, May 11, 2018 in Recent News

Heads-up. You think it couldn’t get any worse, but some bad guys have sunk to a new low. They are now exploiting recent active shooter events on campus to send people into a panic, causing them to "click-by-reflex" to find out if a loved one is safe. Please think before you click, and look for any red flags related to a phishing scam. In any case, report suspicious emails using the Phish Alert Button, or by following the procedure put in place by your organization.

This same phishing attack could be used against any organization with an active shooter protocol and training in place. If you see emails with titles like:
• “IT DESK: Security Alert Reported on Campus”
• “IT DESK: Campus Emergency Scare”
• “IT DESK: Security Concern on Campus Earlier”
