Dear faculty, students, and staff,
The following email is a phishing attack designed to steal your username and password. The email claims to notify you of pending messages in Blackboard and the embedded link takes you to a generic looking page asking you to enter your email, username, and password. I have included a screenshot below.
If you received a similar email, please forward to firstname.lastname@example.org and delete the email. If you mistakenly entered your information, please contact me immediately.
