Please see the message to all students below from ITD in relation to the phishing scam that some UL students may have been affected by.
There have been a number of phishing emails circulating within the University over the last number of days.
Phishing is a fraudulent process used by spammers to acquire sensitive information from users such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details.
The emails have various subject lines, but the most common subject lines are:
Unusual Login Attempt
If you have received any of the above or similar emails, please DELETE them immediately. If you have read the email, DO NOT click on any links within the email.
Unfortunately, a number of student accounts have been compromised as a result of these emails. For such accounts, the following actions have been taken:
If you know anyone who has been impacted by these phishing emails, please encourage them to contact ITSS (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that they can regain access and control of their student account.
We anticipate that the bulk of affected students will have regained access and control of their student account within the next 48 hours.
As a precaution aimed at preventing further accounts from becoming compromised, we would encourage all students to reset their password via the official UL website or by pressing (Ctrl) - (Alt) - (Del) at a UL campus PC.
