Spam E-mail and Phishing Scams

 

Never give your Siena password to anyone.

ITS will not ask for it. 

If anyone asks you to e-mail your password, for any reason, DO NOT SEND IT.

 

If you receive a message similar to the one below, it is not legit.   It is a phishing attempt via Spam e-mail.   Please disregard the message, and delete it.
 

Be very cautious of clicking on links within an email.   The hackers try to gather personal information on the Internet via web links such as the one below.  Siena ITS will not send these messages, and will never ask for passwords or personal information via e-mail.   That is a sure sign of a phishing e-mail.
