PHISH-NewPayrollInformation-April17

In early Sunday morning, a large batch of phishing emails was sent out to over 150 University employees informing them about an update on their payroll information. When clicking the link would direct you to a fake University login page that would capture and store your credentials.

This phishing attack is particularly dangerous because the email seems to be from an legitimate source ‘payroll@plymouth.ac.uk‘. This is known as a spoofing attack.
