  • Phishing mail fraud warnings

    Last updated : Thu, 09 Feb 2017 14:47:53

    The Universities and Colleges Information Systems Association has notified us of a phishing email campaign running over the last two months, that seeks to gain access to the payroll self-service section of university internal websites, in order to divert staff wages.

    Convincing University-branded emails, some containing salary increase promises, are being sent to staff which contain links to crafted landing pages. These sites are convincing copies of the University intranet/HR portal login screen. Logins are collected by the fraudsters who use these credentials to change staff bank details and divert staff pay to third party bank accounts.

    University staff should be advised to be extremely vigilant at present.
    The usual phishing advice applies:

    Do not click on links unless you are sure of the email senders identity.
    Check URLs in emails for strange wording.
    Check the browser HTTPS certificate information bar for sites requiring logins, the site must be identified as secure.
    Further check the browser padlock icon to check the site certificate matches the institution website.
    The Signature block at the bottom of the email is often generic, where instead a named staff member should sign-off.
    The failure to log-in to a University site should raise suspicions and be reported to the IT Service Desk.

  • Spam and Phishing emails - HM Revenue and Customs

  • Echo360 - Issue you may encounter trying to access Echo360 recordings via Moodle or direct web link

    Last updated : Wed, 21 Dec 2016 11:11:32

    When logging on to Echo360 server using your University username and password, you may receive an error that you are already logged on with a user ID in the form of a six-digit number.

    In this event you should try to log off using the log off link, close the web page and try again.

    When you try again, if it still shows you are logged on with the six-digit number you will need to clear your web browser cache (Internet history) and try again.

    Information Services are working on a solution to this issue which will be implemented in the new year.
