Students checking email in computer lab
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 10:26am

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new tool that students, faculty, and staff can reference when they receive suspicious emails.

The new phishing examples page on the ITS website provides a self-service way to determine if an email is a known phishing attempt. Visitors will find a list of recent email messages that were reported to the UI Phishing Team and confirmed to be a widespread phishing message.

When you receive an email that may or may not be a phishing scam, visit the phishing examples page and scan the list of current phishing notices so you can avoid becoming a victim of phishing.

If your phishy email isn’t listed, DO NOT assume it is safe. There are many variants of every phish, and new ones are sent each day. When in doubt, consult with your IT support staff or the ITS Help Desk. If you receive a suspicious email that is not posted here, forward the email to the UI Phishing Team using these instructions.
