‘Expiring password’ email is phishing attempt, school says

An email claiming to facilitate password updates for My Sac State accounts is really a phishing attempt, according to a campus wide email sent by the Office of Information Security on Monday.

The phishing email is circulating among members of the campus community, according to the Office of Information Security, and claims that the receiver must reset their password within two days.

The subject line is “IT-Service Password Update.”

Those who receive the email are advised to forward it to abuse@csus.edu. Those who have given their password away are advised to immediately change it in My Sac State.
