“Hello” from Hackers to Steal Your Login or Money
When new semester starts, you may receive a lot of welcome and greeting messages from different departments or parties.
Hackers might make use of this hype to ask for your information or money. To protect yourself, please always
- Check the sender email address (whether it is in the official or commonly known email domain e.g. your professor will seldom use gmail to contact you)
- Never respond to the email or click the file(s) or link(s) inside if in doubt
Here are some common examples of the phishing emails:
- Impersonating notable company emails, asking you to fix your account or bank account setting
- Impersonating your professors to ask for immediate actions
