Campus Phishing Attempt

Campus was targeted with a phishing email today. The email linked to a web site in an attempt to obtain campus credentials.

Immediately, our security team did the following to remediate the issue:

  • the URL was submitted, classified and blocked on campus as phishing
  • security at offending source was notified
  • take down of yolasite.com was issued

Below are some signs that this was not a legitimate email:
