Phishing Attack at Michigan Tech
This past week individuals at Michigan Tech were the focus of a concentrated phishing email attack. This attack attempted to impersonate Michigan Tech Payroll Services in order to collect username and password data.
The email asked for users to log on to Banweb, offering a link to an off-campus fraudulent site made to look like Banweb.
At this point, less than a dozen individuals mistakenly responded and entered their login information. These users had their real Banweb account accessed and their direct deposit information altered. No other accounts on campus have been affected or exposed. No other accounts on campus have been affected or exposed. All affected users have been contacted.
Michigan Tech asks the University community to remain vigilant against these sorts of attempts. More information about how best to identify and avoid being phished can be found at the Information Technology email security webpage.
