“Email Security Advisory” – Phishing Scam, December, 29, 2017

Posted on: December 29th, 2017 by Jim Pardonek

Below is the most recent phishing email and website we have seen. The noticeable flaw in this email is that is mentions Chicago State University in the body of the email. Similar to past emails, this scam attempts to trick users into entering personal account information (e.g. username/password). Users should not click any links in this email and should delete it right away. As a reminder, Loyola will never ask for your password or to verify your account.

If you have any questions about this or any email, before you act on the email, please call or email the ITS Helpdesk 773-508-4487,
