It was brought to the attention of ITS by multiple employees yesterday that a phishing scam email was circulating. A phishing scam is when the email tries to scare you into clicking a malicious link by telling you that your account will be disabled or you will run out of space if you do not take action.
If you ever recieve an email such as this you should carefully
consider it's validity before taking any action. The appropriate course
of action is to contact the valid entity via a valid form of
communication. In the case of Manhattan College ITS this would be to
either call x7973 or email email@example.com and inform them that you
received such an email. Remember that Manhattan College ITS will never
ask you for your username and password. Whenever any entity asks you
for any personal information always take caution before revealing such
information. In emails always take caution before clicking on any link.
