Currently circulating around campus is a very sneaky phishing scam. With a graphic made to look like a Stanford webpage, it wants you to click on a link to “update your account.” Several people forwarded this to us, cleverly noticing that it is a fake. Thanks for passing it along.
Scammers can be very adept at stealing and altering graphics, so always look closely at your email, and trust your instinct if something seems wrong. Warning signs about this one include: the “From” Address (not a Stanford domain), and the strange language about WebLogin included in the message itself. As always, if you receive a message like this, don’t click on anything, and just delete it.
If you clicked on the link and shared any account information, change your password right away; if you have any questions, contact IRT Security.
