Fake UofT Phishing Email

Published on: March 29, 2016

On Tuesday, March 29, 2016 we saw a phishing email emerge and wanted to make sure our clients were aware of it. The subject line reads: “Important Campus Situation About your Utoronto.Ca ID”. The email message pretends to be “a special announcement on a campus situation” regarding “Utoronto.Ca ID”. It includes a University of Toronto address in the signature line.

If you receive this spam message, be sure not to click any links and to mark as junk.

If you have any concerns regarding this phishing advisory, please contact ITS at its[at]utoronto.ca or your local IT support contact.
