Rise of Malicious Phishing emails

While spam and phishing emails abound, ITS has noticed a spike in malicious Phishing emails. A couple of variants have been spotted recently, 1) Executive Phishing, where an email appearing to come from say the President of Cal Lutheran asks you to open an attachment and provide your credentials to view a file. 2) Extortion emails, where the sender purports to know secrets about you and will make them public to your friends and family unless you transfer a tidy sum to a Bitcoin account.
 Please do not reply to these emails, forward them to, and if there’s any doubt you might have inadvertently logged into a Phishing site, change your password first on the MyCLU login page, then contact the help desk.
