Why am I receiving this message?
RIT email users have received a phishing attack that mimics an RIT official message.
If you've received a message asking to click on a link to provide proof of the existence and functionality of your email, please delete it. Here's a screenshot of the phish that's currently being received by RIT users:
How do I know this is a phishing attempt?
- ITS does not send out emails requesting login information.
- You'll note that the link included in the email does not link to an RIT address. (We've removed the link from this example.)
- The phish uses a common technique of trying to impart a sense of urgency and trying to get you to supply the requested information quickly.
- This is a pretty obvious phish. If you had trouble identifying it, please visit the RIT Information Security Phishing page.
