A number of recent phishing attempts have targeted the S&T community. One phish targeted an mst.edu email account and successfully imitated the account’s information to send subsequent phishing attempts. The phishing emails were not sent by the account user. IT Security wants to remind the S&T community to directly report any suspected phishing attempts and not reply to the user or any suspected phishing attempts. Affected accounts may not realize they have been compromised and are sending phishing emails. IT Security reviews all reported phishing attempts and notifies account users appropriately.
