Current Status: Open
Service(s) Impacted: Gmail, ePass
Description: On May 12th there was another phishing message sent out to a large number of PLU email accounts pretending to come from Human Resources and claiming to provide updated information about staff benefits. This is a phishing message that was not sent by PLU staff. It provides links to a login page that looks very similar to the PLU ePass login page, but is not legitimate. If you did receive it, please mark the message as phishing in your Gmail account. If you attempted to sign into the fake ePass login screen, please change your password as soon as possible at epass.plu.edu and do not approve any login attempts that you are prompted for via Duo multi-factor authentication. If you have questions or concerns about the status of your account, please email email@example.com and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.
