Current Security Alerts
An email phishing scam is circulating that purports to come from "firstname.lastname@example.org", "email@example.com" or other similar fake VT address. The email body contains a link to a very convincing replica of the VT Login page. If a user enters their credentials, they will be socially engineered to bypass Duo. Please report any accidental credential submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and report variants of this phishing scam to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Screenshots of the phishing scam are below.
Signs of forgery:
1) Incorrect URL that is not from a vt[dot]edu address
2) Incorrect font used for “Login Service.”
3) Links in the top navigation bar do not work.
