In honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, IT recently sent a simulated phishing email to users within Harrisburg University. The purpose of this email was to raise email phishing awareness and help you identify social engineering indicators. Malicious email links have the ability to launch malware, viruses and steal credentials. Additionally, never input your credentials on sites that have suspicious URLs.
If you are ever unsure about the legitimacy of a specific email please forward the email to spam@HarrisburgU.edu. Users are also able to forward suspicious messages to Microsoft’s Office 365 (O365)’s mail monitoring team directly via the firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
