UofT Phishing Alert – Monday, May 9, 2016 at 15:00 (ET)

We have received several notices from users about a phishing email that has circulated. The body of the email reads the following (see phish transcript/image below):

If you receive this phishing email, do not click any links and mark as junk right away.

The message includes a link that redirects to a URL with “utoronto-ca-help-desk” and a “.com” top-level domain, where users are asked for login information. The From / To lines have been forged to say they are from a Utoronto account. This is fraudulent. 

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us at its[at] 

We thank you for your vigilance.
