The Texas Tech University Office of the CIO alerts the Lubbock community of an active, malicious email campaign regarding the current crisis in Syria.
These messages typically direct readers to a webpage, either by soliciting a donation or encouraging you to explore a link for further information. In reality, these messages are "phishing" emails – an attempt to steal your identity. If you click on any of the links within the email, malicious software may also install on your computer—without notifying you that the installation is occurring.
If you receive one of these messages, please delete it immediately. If you have responded to any of these emails and provided personal information, please contact your local IT support provider immediately for additional assistance.
