Student phishing attack - 22 May 2020

We have become aware that some University email accounts were subject to a phishing attack earlier today (22 May).

The email was titled ‘Your Attention Is Needed’. We responded quickly and have removed the email from University accounts.

If you received the email, clicked on the link within it and entered your password before we removed the message from the system, please contact the University’s IT Service Desk by email (IT.Services@lboro.ac.uk) as soon as possible, including your phone number. Staff will then be able to contact you and advise you on what actions you might need to take. Our team will be monitoring this mailbox over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Information about how to stay safe online is available on the IT Services’ website.
