A well-crafted phishing email went out to many Auburn students, faculty, and staff over the weekend. Our records indicate that you were one of the recipients of the email which originated from firstname.lastname@example.org. This email requested that people enter credentials in order to reactivate their Cisco VPN access. If you entered your credentials, we urge you to change your Auburn password immediately. If you use that same password elsewhere, please consider changing those as well.
We would like to reiterate that this was a well-crafted email, but there are usually red flags in any phishing attack that you should be aware of. Here are some we spotted in this email:
