"Employment Job Placement & Student Services" - received August 25, 2021
The Bad Guys know its the beginning of the semester too - they love to capitalize on periods of transition or stress when you might have your guard down. Be especially wary of job offers this time of year.
"UVM NEWSLETTER!!!" - received August 24, 2021
We've seen this one before, back on July 2nd. It's same nonsensical content, leveraging a compromised UVM account, leading you to click on a Google Doc that seeks to steal your NetID credentials.
We receive a request to terminate campus email! - received August 14, 2021
Attackers are savvy about our calendar, and know that you're most likely to respond to a social engineering attack when you're stressed or distracted. The start of a new semester is a great time to catch college students, faculty, and staff unawares! This one leveraged a compromised UVM to evade our spam filtering, but as always, you can tell if it's real by hovering your mouse over the link to make sure it will bring you to a uvm.edu address - this one doesn't.
"Work remotely this fall! (Personal Assistant Position)" and other job scams - received August 14, 2021
Received a great-sounding, unsolicited job offer? Be skeptical and double-check the legitimacy of the offer before providing any personal information.
"New Web Access | PLEASE READ" - received August 13, 2021
The flood of phishing continues, some making more of an effort than others...
'Uvm Career Search Broadcast!' - received July 27, 2021
As always, 'too good to be true' is exactly that. Always be skeptical of unsolicited job offers, no matter the source!
<no subject> - received July 26, 2021
Worried that "Your mailbox storage" is filling up? Just make sure you're going to the real mail.uvm.edu to clean it out. How to tell this warning is a fake? The link doesn't point to uvm.edu, that's how!
MYVANILLA - received July 26, 2021
$2700 in COVID relief in exchange for giving up your deets to MYVANILLACARD, eh? Somehow, we don't think so. Delete it, Cats: This one's a scam.
"Action Required !!" - received July 8, 2021
More fear, uncertainty, and doubt! Not to worry, we're not going to cancel your account, and this link leads to a non-UVM URL.
"The University of Vermont" - received July 5, 2021
Here's another phish unfortunately sent from a compromised UVM account - there's no real content, and the link leads to a moonfruit.com address.
2021-2022 LPR NOTICE - received July 6, 2021
This one is ok! The link really leads to a uvm.edu address. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT NEWSLETTER!!! - received July 2, 2021
Google sites can be used for malicious purposes just like any other web space - this link leads to a Google Doc designed to steal your UVM credentials.
