CSD Service Desk email phishing attempt

A fraudulent email purporting to be from the CSD Service Desk has been sent to a number of University members.

Computing Services has taken appropriate action to prevent the email from reaching any more of our staff and students.

The email looks like it comes from the Service Desk, and asks users to click on a link called "Your incident". This link takes the user to a website designed to steal your University credentials.

If you have received this email, please do not click on any links and report it to the Service Desk via servicedesk.liverpool.ac.uk immediately.

For information on what this fraudulent email looks like and how you can spot clues to its lack of authenticity, visit the CSD website: www.liverpool.ac.uk/csd/security/email-security/latest/CSD-servicedesk-phishing/

Thank you to all the University members who have correctly identified and reported this phishing attempt. We appreciate your vigilance which helps us keep your and the University's data secure.
