2:57 p.m., March 8, 2012--University of Delaware Information Technologies (IT) reports that a new phishing scam tailored to the UD community began arriving in UD inboxes this afternoon, March 8.

If you receive email with the subject line “Your Webmail Account is on Restriction,” delete it. Do not click any links in the message.

FYI Stories

Two-factor authentication

Since two-factor authentication provides more security than a simple password, UD IT recommends that it be used whenever it's offered.

Faculty climate survey

The NSF ADVANCE grant team at UD has shared the results of a faculty climate survey on topics including promotion and tenure, evaluation, merit, workload, family-friendly policies, mentoring, and career satisfaction.

Even though the message appears to come from University IT staff, the email is a phishing scam designed to get you to click a link to harvest your personal information. 

If you hover your computer’s mouse over the link that allegedly goes to UD’s Webmail service, you’ll see that the link would really take you to a suspect site.
