Some University of Oregon community members received e-mails recently with the subject “UOAlert!: Final Warning,” that asked the recipients to “confirm” e-mail information.
These were “phishing” attempts from an unknown sender that should be deleted immediately. The UO will never e-mail students or employees and ask them to click a link and enter personal information.
Legitimate UOAlert! emergency notification e-mails may contain links for information (primarily to this Alerts page, https://alerts.uoregon.edu) but those links will be for reading and information only, and will not ask for passwords or personal information.
Any time you receive an e-mail that looks suspicious (misspellings, strange addresses, poor syntax or grammar), or that asks for personal information, please immediately forward the e-mail to UO Information Services at email@example.com.
