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, by clicking on the IT@Sam menu, then on Account Password Change.

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

Unfortunately, this is not an April Fools joke.
