A little over a week ago, RIT users were targeted in a phishing attack that masqueraded as important messages. The links provided in the email messages resembled our myinfo page.
Here’s one of the variants below. You’ll note that although the end of the link is myinfo.rit.edu, the first part of the link is to a location in Brazil. Clicking on that link would take you to the website that mimics myinfo.rit.edu, not to the RIT site.
