Spam is once again hitting campus. Be cautious with suspicious email and report it to Google. #AnnounceIT

Once again we are receiving reports of spam hitting campus. The most recent subject of the spam is "ELECTRONIC PAYMENT REMITTANCE ADVICE"; however, we recommend you are cautious with any email you receive that seems suspicious by following the suggestions at Protecting your computer from malware.

If you have received a suspicious email, select the email in your mailbox, then click Report spam to remove it from your account and to report it to Google.

If you have replied to a suspicious email or opened an attachment, we recommend you change your Google Apps Account password immediately. Please go to the Change password: Google Apps Account (email) article on the IT KnowledgeBase for step-by-step instructions. 

We also recommend you run a virus scan as a further precaution if you have received a suspicious email. Please go to the Healthy Computing article on IT KnowledgeBase to learn how you can download and run Symantec Endpoint Protection on your computer.
