LIS would like to alert the Luther community to a new trend in phishing scams that has been emerging.
In the past, phishing attempts have been disguised as e-mails purporting to be from the Help Desk or a Systems Administrator. The messages tend to ask that you reply with your username and password or fill out a form on a compromised website. This information is then in turn used to gain access to e-mail accounts, credit cards, and so forth.
Recently, phishers have begun using Google Docs to gather this information.
