Service Announcement - 30 January 2024Warning of another phishing attack

The university is currently being targeted by a highly professional phishing campaign aimed at stealing access data for university IDs and project accounts.

These phishing emails have various fake senders who pretend to be sent by Microsoft Teams. It is difficult to tell from the content that this is an attack. However, each email contains at least one link to a website that looks like a login page for an IT service.
We have blocked the domain addresses of the web servers within the university that we are currently aware of. However, this measure is only effective if you are in the university network.
