UNB warns of phishing scheme

January 13, 2009

The University of New Brunswick is asking students and staff to be wary of  a phishing scheme that has hit the institution. An e-mail circulating through the UNB community tells people their web accounts will expire unless they pass along their passwords, birth dates, and account names. A UNB systems analyst says the point of the scheme appears to be to hijack the school's website to deliver spam messages through UNB e-mail accounts. CBC
