Spear Phish Phry

July 16, 2008

A new spear phish has graced the inboxes of various Case users with a spoofed return address of 'case-daily AT case.edu'. The Case Daily site messages are media rich, so users should not be fooled by this simple text email. This message has evaded spam filtering mechanisms.

As with most phish messages, this one also attempts to direct users to email their password and reply via email.

The savvy Case User knows that ITS will never ask for such information.
Please continue to report any phishing events to the Case Help Desk.
