UNH IT has received reports of a phishing email with a subject of "IT Service Desk".  The sender may display as an external email address but may also come from a legitimate UNH email address.  The links in this phishing attack open a fake UNH Outlook Web Access log in screen in an attempt to steal user credentials.

Linked text in the email is underlined, but all links have been removed.
