    06.13.12 Security Announcement: False E-mails

    Recently, the Southern Miss community has been receiving phishing E-mails about "reaching your e-mail quota alert" and prompting you click on a link to upgrade your quota. This is SPAM!

    Phishing is the practice of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and/or financial details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity such as the help desk. Phishing is typically carried out by email requesting your personal information, directing you to a false website, or email attachment containing a virus.

    Always verify the sender of the E-mail before opening it and the website credentials. If you can't verify the sender/website, delete the message immediately.

    No one from the University will ever ask you for your personal information. That belongs to you and should be kept safe. For further assistance, contact the iTech Help Desk immediately at 601.266.HELP.
