New Blackboard and Document Phishing Emails 9/19/2013

Here are two new phishing emails circulating the campus this morning. As always, do not click on links or open attachments in suspected phishing emails.

You can tell this first message is a phishing email because the link in the message points to brassoiskola.hu. Obviously this is not a Northeastern Blackboard website.
