Newest Phishing Scam- Don't Click!

The University of Rhode Island has recently been the target of a phishing attack that was specifically targeted at individual URI employees. These employees have received an email with a link to a malicious zip file that is designed to take control of your computer. This particular attack was conducted by a group of know miscreants that are interested in cyber espionage.

If you receive any email with a link that ends with, DO NOT click on the link, but immediately contact Michael Khalfayan of the Information Security Office at 401-874-4787.
