Several people at BUMC have received phishing emails recently. These emails try to look legitimate, but they are in fact solely looking to steal your username and password.
There is one email going around saying New Message – click here to read. When you get emails like this, please be skeptical. Hover over the link to see where it is taking you. Is it to an unknown website that isn’t a bu.edu website? If so, it is probably a phishing attempt. See http://www.bu.edu/tech/comm/email/unwanted-email/help/ for more information. You can always call BUMC IT at 617.638.5914 if you have questions as well as forward any suspicious emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
