March 7, 2017

by UNH IT Staff

With the state and federal tax season in full swing, phishing emails claiming to contain tax info or ask you to update your personal information are abundant. UNH IT has received reports of a phishing attempt with the subject line, “Your online W-2 form is now available”, and appears to be from the University System of New Hampshire.

The message attempts to gain access to your UNH credentials by linking to a webpage that asks for your UNH username and password.

If you received this message, please delete the message. If you clicked on the link and entered your username and password, please contact the UNH IT Service Desk immediately at 603-862-4242.
