This is a classic example of an email verification phishing attempt. In this case, a hacker is posing as the Office365 Team, attempting to gain your username and password for malicious use. The user below is sent an email from an unknown sender.



This kind of message is seen a lot on campus. The message should be ignored, should be reported to Tennessee Tech Abuse, and deleted from your mailbox. Remember: we will never ask for your password.

If at any point the indications are unclear, are not easily discerned, or are confusing, you can always forward the message to abuse@tntech.edu for analysis by ITS. For protection tips, visit our awareness page.
