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 as an attachment and delete the email immediately.  Please always practice safe computing – when in doubt ask before you click, or reply.
