Campus Phishing Alert 4/1/2017

Many people received an e-mail this morning claiming to have been sent from the Sam Houston State University Technology Department concerning a login alert with a subject of “Alert!!!”. (See image below.)

The link included in the message appeared to have been a SHSU Online link, but was directed to a malicious site that requests your username and password. IT Security has contacted the appropriate parties in order for them to remove the malicious site.

If you still have an e-mail in your inbox, please delete the e-mail with no further action.

If you have already visited the site and entered your username and password, please change your password as soon as possible at https://samweb.shsu.edu, by clicking on the IT@Sam menu, then on Account Password Change.

Please contact the Service Desk at servicedesk@shsu.edu or (936) 294-1950 should you have any questions, concerns, or trouble resetting your password.

Unfortunately, this is not an April Fools joke.
