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.
