JLab Target of Intense Phishing Activity: Be Vigilant; Report Suspicious Emails
All Jefferson Lab computer account holders:
The lab has been the target of intense phishing activity over the last week, or so. Fake email messages that dealt with several subject areas
(webmail accounts, on-line bank accounts, and unclaimed money) came from a number of different sources. In the case of one of these, simply following a link in the message could result in compromise of the victim's machine.
Please be vigilant and suspicious about ANY email that asks for personal information or computer account information. If you have any doubt about the validity of a message, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org for advice.
