Beware of phishing e-mails

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Of course ‘UPGRADE YOUR ETHZ E-Mail-Konto.‘ is a phishing attempt. And not a bad one at that. The German is halfway correct and they even used different From: and Reply-To: addresses. But still: no administrator worth her title would ever ask for a password. Please delete.

Be aware of phishing e-mails

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Currently a great number of phishing e-mails are flooding the intarwebs, not all of which are being discarded by our spam filters.

Please remember that neither we nor ETH Informatikdienste would ever ask you to provide your account data, let alone via e-mail. Never ever send this information to anyone.

These e-mails are pretty well written, but sender addresses like <> and <> should make all your alarm bells go off.

Thanks for your cooperation.
