|Recent phishing attempt for UND e-mail addresses|
Last Saturday many of the UND e-mail accounts received a phishing attempt. The e-mail received asked for the account holders username and password. A copy of the e-mail is below.
The Help Desk or any other support area will never ask for the account holders password. If you replied to this email with your username and password, you should immediately sign onto your account and change your password. If you cannot access your account, call the Help Desk immediately at 777-2222 and we can change your password for you.
The main way you may be able to tell that this is a phishing attempt is that the e-mail address is an off-campus address.
Here is a copy of the e-mail many of you received.
