Never give out your username or password

DoIT continues to receive reports of faculty and staff receiving that is part of a targeted "phishing" attack to steal your username and password information or infect your computer. 

One recent email that a number of faculty received appeared to come from Blackboard, and is listed below. DoIT will not give out our email lists to 3rd parties and it would always come from someone in DoIT.

The message below does not have the Link active, however, in the original message if you took your mouse and hovered it over the link for "Click here to sign in and revier this article now." you would see the web site is not Bloackboard.com
