Phishing Attempt – May 23 2017

ITS has received reports of malicious/phishing emails being sent to various college staff.  The phishing email claims to be from Niagara College Canada and that you need to click a Mail Account link to keep your email account.

Please DO NOT click on any links!  The Niagara College Helpdesk will never ask you for your username/password credentials over email.

Anyone receiving an email with the subject looking similar to “Niagara College Canada Helpdesk” or other similarly suspicious emails, are asked to forward them to ITSHELPDESK@niagaracollege.ca as an attachment and delete the email immediately.  Please always practice safe computing – when in doubt ask before you click, or reply.
