Widespread email phishing attempts

Fraudulent emails are targeting Cornell by claiming to be from a Cornell office or official, requesting personal information and passwords. They are trying to scare people into reacting by creating a sense of urgency with ALL CAPS, threatening to close an account, etc. Unfortunately, these types of phishes are becoming incredibly common.

 

For a recent example where someone almost transferred $9,000 due to a phish, see the security alert we posted on December 17, 2015, Highly sophisticated email fraud is leveraging Cornell names and relationships: http://www.it.cornell.edu/services/alert.cfm?id=4117
