|Beware of new e-mail scam|
There is a new e-mail scam that has hit thousands of users at dozens of colleges over the past few weeks. Students, faculty, and staff members at the affected colleges received e-mail messages that look like they come from the colleges' help desks, asking users to reply with their log-in and password, and in some cases other personal information including birth date.
But the messages actually come from malicious hackers who use the information to send spam messages from the accounts. Unauthorized access or compromised accounts could be used to do further damage to the university networks.
As a safety precaution you should never provide your account password to anyone. If you need to provide personal information for verification purposes, you should call the Help Desk instead of using email.
Please contact the Information Technology Systems and Services help desk at ITSSHELP@mail.und.edu or 777-2222 if you have questions.
