Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
We have received multiple reports of users receiving the phishing message shown in the image to the right.
Upon clicking this message, users are re-directed to a website which closely resembles a typical Trent University login page.
If you are a recipient of this message, please delete it. No further action is required, unless you have clicked the link and supplied your myTrent username and password.
If you have clicked the link and supplied your myTrent username and password, please contact the IT service desk at x1010 to arrange to have your password changed.
Please note – Trent IT does not always send a Tech Bulletin when phishing attempts are distributed to our community. For additional tips on how to recognize phishing messages, please see https://www.trentu.ca/it/services/email-security-phishing-and-spam
