Phishing Alert—Recent increase in phishing emails.

UNM IT will NEVER ask for your password in an email. NEVER click on any link in an email that asks for your confidential information, or you will most likely provide someone with access to your UNM account.

Phishing is defined as "the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money), often for malicious reasons, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication."
