Phishing Emails Target GRCC – Never Respond, Never Click

Phishing emails are again attempting to harvest user logins from GRCC addresses.

Here are some things to remember when getting email that seems suspicious:
-No legitimate organization would be contacting users directly for login credentials, password, login name, Social Security number, or other personal information through e-mail.
-Any communication about scheduled network maintenance would be communicated from the IT department through GRCC Today, and our associated communication channels.
Never respond to these email messages and never click on links within them.

This is an example of the phishing message currently being distributed:

“Due to the recent Virus attack on our database,We are currently upgrading our database and all email accounts need to be verified.
‘IT Help desk’ will be upgrading to the latest anti-spam version.
You are required to Click ACCOUNT and provide us the below information withing the next 72 hours so that your account can be upgraded OR have your account deleted from our database due to the menace of this virus.
Failure to do this within 72 hours will immediately render your
account deactivated from our database.”

Thank you for helping keep our network and your data safe!
