Recent phishing emails

 

You may have noticed a number of spam or phishing emails over the last few days, particularly with the subject line “Administrator Team”.

We can confirm that this is a phishing email and can be deleted. We have taken action to block this from within campus but we remind everyone to remain vigilant.

Remember, IT Services will NEVER ask for details of your University credentials by email. If you receive an email asking you to provide those details, delete it.

 

What should you do?

If in any doubt, do not click on any links or attachments that you are not expecting, even if from a known source. Guidance on how to spot phishing emails can be found in the Learners’ Toolkit at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/toolkit/basics/outlook

 

If you are in any way concerned about an email you have received please contact the IT Service Desk. Thank you to those who have taken the time to report this to us.
