Phishing Attempt – May 29 2017

ITS has received reports of phishing emails being sent to various college staff.  The phishing email claims that you are required to login to a Helpdesk portal to maintain your email access.  A similar phishing email also claims that you need to click a link to increase your mailbox storage limit.

Please DO NOT click on any links!

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