Reminder about scam emails

Last week we received reports of a phishing email with the subject line 'Email Access Disable'. 400 people received this email before it was reported. A substantial number clicked on the link and several volunteered their username and password. A similar scam email was sent again on Saturday from a different address and the contents included a different link.  This time it reached 2,700 people and compromised several more accounts before it was reported and blocked.

Our security measures are robust, but some emails do get through. Most importantly, our blocks only work on-site. If you click on a link in a phishing email at home, it will go through to the scam webpage.

We rely on you to be vigilant. We need you to spot and report the emails that slip through our net. Please make sure you read our top tips for spotting the signs of a scam: Avoiding scams and malware

Contact: the ICT Service Desk to report potential scam emails.
