A new "phishing" attack has targeted Penn. The phishing email claims, "This email is being sent to inform you that you have been granted a new digital certificate for use with Bank of America CashPro. Online." In actuality, the links in the email actually go to tostiabbigliamento.com! It is an attempt to get you to reveal your Bank of America or American Express credentials. Don't fall for the con game!
Doug Smullens of the University Library reports that faculty members are receiving fraudulent emails warning that their Penn Library accounts have expired. The email is an attempt to obtain your password!
"Phishing" attacks have targeted Penn and several other universities. In these attacks, faculty, staff and students receive a fraudulent email message and are asked to reply with their email username and password. Do not reply.
