Beware of PHISHING!!!

by SCCC OIT

PHISHING!!!  Dangerous spoofing email pretending to be from us!

Spoofing is when an email shows information that appears to be from, and/or go to, someone or somewhere other than its real origin or destination.

This email pretends to be from Blackboard (software that we use) and asks you to click a link that looks like it uses our authentication cas.sunysuffolk.edu and has something to do with President McKay (mckays), Blackboard and other code that may look familiar to our users.

It is all bogus! It goes to a phishing page being hosted (probably unknown to them) on the site of a custom fencing company.

The moral: Don’t click on links in emails and be safe!
