Dear university community:
Over the last few days, we have experienced a dramatic uptick in efforts to compromise our online security. Most of these are phishing attacks that attempt to trick the recipient into clicking a malicious link. At this time, it is crucial that we take extreme caution before clicking on any links and before opening attachments in emails.
Below are examples of phishing emails in circulation over the last few days. If you received a similar email, please do not click on any links and delete the message immediately. I encourage each of you to review best practices to protect yourself from attacks of this kind by learning how to distinguish a phishing email from a legitimate email.
If you have any questions regarding a specific email, please contact VUIT Incident Response at email@example.com or call our help desk at (615) 343-9999.
Your online safety is our priority. Help us keep Vanderbilt and its information secure.
