Students warned to report suspicious emails after phishing attack

By Rosie Vacciana-Browne

Students at De Montfort University (DMU) are being warned to be cautious when clicking on links sent via email following a sector-wide phishing attack last week.

DMU’s IT team (ITMS) has worked hard to clear the emails but students who have already clicked on any suspicious links are being urged to change their passwords.

All students are being asked to be extra vigilant and avoid giving away personal information to untrusted sources.

The phishing attack has hit multiple schools, colleges and universities.

Students who receive suspicious emails are being urged to alert ITMS by calling 0116 250 6050 or emailing itmsservicedesk@dmu.ac.uk.
