Phishing emails

Whilst email is not part of HICS, some of you may find this post useful. Today we have received multiple reports regarding phishing emails being sent to schools in Hertfordshire. The email displays a blue box and asks for recipients to click on it, so they can display the complete message. If a user clicks the button it takes them to a page that is pre populated with the user’s email address, asking for a password. Under no circumstances should users enter their passwords on any screen that looks suspicious. We have restricted access to the web address that the current mail points to, however it is of course possible that this will change, so we recommend users remain vigilant.
