Beware of Spear Phishing Spam and giving out your passwords Print
Written by Janaka Jayawardena   
Monday, 30 September 2013

This is our periodic notice to warn people of dangerous e-mail spam - namely Phishing Spam.  We deal with a few waves of these at the start of term and Fall 2013 is shaping up to be a strong phishing season.  A few recent victims have been costly, leading to main PSU mail servers being blacklisted over the weekend, so please take note.


The CAT and OIT will NEVER ask for passwords via e-mail.


DO NOT follow links in your e-mail that require you to enter your login and password information.


DO NOT send out any unencrypted, sensitive information via e-mail.
