Once again, ITS has received reports of a phishing attempt that is going around campus. This attempt appears like a message with a link to a file in Google Drive:
Some details that should make you suspicious of this email:
- Misspellings and grammar errors (i.e. space before the question mark, misspelling of doc in “view dock here”, its when it should be it’s, etc). Especially when the sender usually pays attention to these details
- The email asks you to sign to Google Apps to view the document when you are already signed in to read your email.
- When you hover over the link, you can see that it is a shortened link and not a docs.google.com link.
