Phishing Emails Circulating on Campus – Appears to be from the University Library

Please beware of phishing emails circulating on campus which appears to be from the University Library.

This campaign targets Faculty/Staff and Students in an attempt to steal credentials by trying to convince them that they need to authenticate in order to renew access to Library resources, or to prevent access or accounts from expiring.

The phishing email will have either a link or a document that directs the user to a website that is a copy of the Library website, but on a different, external domain/URL.

If you receive this phishing email, please delete it immediately.  If you have already responded to this email, please change your MyCarleton One (MC1) password immediately.  If you require assistance, please contact the ITS Service Desk at 613-520-3700.

Always be wary of unsolicited email that asks for personal information, or tries to convince you to click on a web link to update or confirm personal information.  These are often phishing emails.
