U of I Warns of Phishing Scam
Several University of Illinois e-mail users have been hacked.
U of I officials are warning about a phishing scam that's been going on during the last couple of weeks. They say the phishing attack used e-mails with University of Illinois branding, which tricked users into revealing their account information, like usernames and passwords.
Now, the hacked accounts are being used to send more spam and phishing messages.
Spam control services are now blacklisting all e-mails from all U of I accounts. The university said system changes are being made to help reduce the attacks.
