URI has switched email services for staff and faculty  to Google Apps for Education.  It's a big improvement over the previous system!  If you are having problems feel free to call the Help Desk 401-874-4357 option 1.  Our students have been using a similar system for 3 years now!

We are sending the following urgent message on behalf of the URI Information Security Office

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 Staff_Changes.zip, DO NOT click on the link, but immediately contact Michael Khalfayan of the Information Security Office at 401-874-4787.

Reminder: The University of Rhode Island will NEVER ask you for your password, nor will the university send you email requesting your password information. Ignore all email messages requiring you to provide such information.

Thank you.
