    SUBJECT: Campus Targeted by Malicious E-mail

    The campus has recently been targeted by malicious e-mails that appear to be
    attempts to gain user information by asking recipients to login to a spoofed
    e-mail login page. Individuals who received these e-mails should simply delete
    the messages. An example of this e-mail is online at
    http://oit.colorado.edu/node/3988.

    The campus IT Security Office is taking steps to block connections from campus
    to this phishing site.

    To learn more about phishing attempts and how to not fall prey to them, visit
