ITS Online

Reminder about email based schemes to collect passwords

February 04, 2013

     Please remember to be wary of “phishing” scams that ask you to login to a malicious web site. If they are from a pseudo IT department, they are often not signed personally the way that Penn Law ITS announcements are. Beware of letters prompting you to “update your account”; enter your login only on the official Penn web applications that you are accustomed to.

 

For more details on phishing “do’s” and “don’t’s” please see:

You can check Penn’s Phishing Email Archive to see whether a suspicious email has already been submitted and positively identified as fraudulent:

Please remain skeptical of unsolicited email. And feel free to forward them to itshelp@law.upenn.edu if you want help determining their legitimacy. We have no way to block them outright since they originate from many locations and addresses.
