Recent Phishing Emails Threaten Campus and Personal Data Security
See latest phishing schemes: Recent Phishing Examples
Many people are reporting phishing messages that appear to come from legitimate sources, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, the Better Business Bureau, Amazon, American Airlines, and even Lehigh University itself. These messages include links to sites that exploit vulnerabilities with Java and Adobe Flash. Be suspicious of any email that contains misspellings or poor grammar, conveys extreme urgency, or asks for login or personal information.
LTS RECOMMENDATION: Avoid clicking links until you can confirm that the message is from a legitimate source. Rather than using the link, go directly to the site by entering the web address in a browser. See more information on our LTS Phishing Guide to avoid being caught.
