Campus Phishing Alert

By Joe Wojtkiewicz

We have another round of phishing/spam attempts circulating. This time they spoof the Sender information and make it appear as if sent from support@svsu.edu and "Web-mail Administrator".  It is an attempt to collect your account username and password to compromise your account to send out additional spam.
