An unknown number of users have received a phishing scam message:
From: University of Dundee <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Library Notifications
The message states that ‘…the University Libraries will be implementing changes to the authentication mechanism used for granting access to subscribed article databases….’ It goes on to state that you should click on a web address included in the message or copy and paste the address into your web browser.
Do NOT perform either action.
Best practice is to delete the email entirely. Please do not reply to the e-mail or click/copy-paste the link within it.
