Current phishing attacks flood

Dear employees, dear students,

as you most probably have realized by now, in the last couple of days you all have received plenty of phishing emails, faking to be sent as a reply to an email initiated by you, variations of this are a plenty.

Unfortunately the provided attachments and links have already sporadically been used and, thus, produced an avalanche of more of the same.

In this context we ask you to be vigilant when reading email, especially when you are asked for changing your account details!

More, very detailed information (in German) is to be found here: it.tuwien.ac.at/security/erklaerungen_anleitungen/phishing, opens an external URL in a new window, if your native language is not German please ask your colleagues for assistance. In case you suspect an email to be a phishing attempt please do not hesitate to send it AS AN ATTACHMENT to phishing@tuwien.ac.at.

many thanks for your attention and understanding,

TU IT Solutions
