Jefferson Lab e-mail accounts are currently receiving fake e-mails that claim to be
from the from the Help Desk. The e-mails assert that the recipient's e-mail account
has exceeded its quota/limit. The e-mail includes a link that will supposedly allow
the recipient to increase their mailbox capacity.
The subject of these emails states: "YOUR MAILBOX QUOTA HAS BEEN EXCEEDED." These
are "phishing" e-mails aimed at getting you to reveal your account information.
If you have received this suspicious e-mail, delete it immediately. If you have
already responded to this e-mail, clicked the link in the e-mail, or have other
questions, please immediately change your password and then submit a CCPR to the
Computer Center HelpDesk or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org informing us that
your account was been compromised.
