Phishing attempts use replies to existing messages

A unique new phishing attempt is targeting email inboxes across campus, using compromised accounts to reply to existing messages.

The phishing email may be sent by someone you know and have the following message:

Do not click on the image. It is an attempt to steal your information.

To report suspected phishing to AskIT, email it to or download the PhishMe Reporter button for one-click reporting in Outlook.

To better protect your UAB accounts, sign up for 2-factor authentication using Duo.
