PhishMe Reporter

PhishMeReporter logoSo you’ve received a suspicious email and you think it may be a “phish” designed to steal your UAB account credentials. But how do you report this message and find out for sure?

Reporting suspicious messages used to be a multi-step process for UAB users, but now you can report a suspicious message with a single click. For those users on a Windows or Mac system who use Microsoft Outlook, UAB Information Security has partnered with PhishMe Inc. and made PhishMe Reporter available to all UAB users. PhishMe Reporter is an add-on software “plug-in” to Microsoft Outlook that allows for one-click reporting of suspicious emails.

If you are using the Microsoft Outlook client, you should use the PhishMe reporter tool to submit a phishing email.

If you cannot use PhishMe Reporter, immediately forward phish messages to abuse@uab.edu. NOTE: UAB IT may retrieve header information if needed for these messages from our mail server if they are not included in the forward.

Note: PhishMe Reporter is not intended for UAB Medicine employees (i.e. anyone with a uabmc.edu email address) as UAB Medicine IT will be rolling this out separately later this month.
