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

2FA protects you

If you are using two-factor authentication (2FA), even if a hacker has your password, your information is probably safe.

Library photo ID

Starting July 1, University of Delaware Library visitors without ONEcards must provide school-issued identification or state or government-issued photo identification when signing in at the Welcome Desk.

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.
