Phishing Email appears to be from WPI leadership

Impact

There is a new phishing trick out there, so don't get hooked! WPI has seen a significant rise in phishing attempts using names of executives, faculty, and other senior leadership. The messages lure you, the recipient, to click on a link as a work-related or urgent request for help. On the average WPI gets 2-4 of these per week, so don't hesitate to report phishing and please spread the word!
