Tech Tuesday: Don't get hooked by 'phishing'
From Information Resources and Technologies

Information Resources and Technologies continues to see an increase in the number of "phishing" e-mails sent to UST accounts.

"Phishing" e-mails attempt to deceive the recipient into giving up private information in a response to a message or by leading the recipient to a fraudulent Web site.

IRT reminds everyone to never provide anyone with passwords, Social Security numbers, credit card numbers or any other information via e-mail, and IRT will never request your username or password from you via e-mail.

More information about "phishing" is available in the Aug. 11 issue of Bulletin Today.
