TO: Boulder Campus students, faculty, staff, administrators
FROM: Office of Information Technology (formerly Information Technology Services)
SENDER: Dan Jones, Director of IT Security
DATE: June 11, 2011
SUBJECT: Campus Targeted by Malicious E-mail
The campus has been targeted by a malicious e-mail that appears to be an
attempt to gain usernames and passwords. Individuals who received an e-mail
with the subject line "Your University of Colorado Email Suspension Notice"
should simply delete the message.
If you responded to the e-mail or clicked on the link and entered your username
and password, please contact the IT Service Center during regular business
hours at 303-735-4357 (5-HELP from a campus phone). If you responded to the
message and provided your username and password, it is recommended that you
reset your password at CU-Boulder Identity Manager. To access CU-Boulder
Identity Manager, open a web browser and connect to https://cuidm.colorado.edu.
The university will never send e-mail asking for your private data (e.g.
passwords, SSNs, credit card numbers, etc.) and you should be suspicious of
messages that direct you to provide this information. It is also a good
practice to never click on a link in an e-mail but rather open a web browser
and type in the website address instead.
If you ever have questions about the legitimacy of a message, you are welcome
to contact the IT Service Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-735-4357 (5-HELP
from a campus phone). Phone help is available 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through
