WARNING: Fraudulent Email – ‘Urgent on your Email Account!’ May 7, 2008

As a general policy, UBC IT never requests this type of information.

There has been a widespread phishing attempt across UBC today. This is affecting both Interchange and Exchange users.

If you have received a message with ‘Urgent on your Email Account!’ in the subject header. Please do not respond. In the message body, the user is told to send their username, password, etc. as a reply to indicate that their email address is still in use. This message did not originate from any UBC department even though the sender address appears to be legitimate.

Please delete the email message.
