Phishing Email Warning Update

October 15, 2018

IT Services would again like to remind students to be extra vigilant when clicking on links in emails, especially where asked to input university credentials.

IT Services have confirmed that the phishing attempt warning over the weekend was contained rapidly in order to minimise impact.

If you are concerned that you may have responded to this recent phishing activity, or if you would like to discuss your concerns, please in the first instance reset your password via SSAA, using a ‘safe/ trusted’ device, i.e. an alternative device to the one you were using to access the link initially.

Then contact the IT Service Desk via their online Customer Service Centre or by telephone +44 1443 4 82882 for further advice and guidance.

Ongoing protection for devices

It is good practice to maintain an up to date version of an Anti-Virus package on your personal devices, and importantly it is a requirement to do so if you are using such a device to access University systems.

We suggest given the current environment, that all students check that their antivirus is up to date on all devices.
