We've seen increased activity by Phishers in recent weeks attempting to coax UAA users to give up their usernames and/or passwords. A significant attack on UAA's mail system took place over the July 4th weekend due exclusively to compromised email accounts of user's who had given up their passwords to Phshers.
Beginning on July 1 and continuing through July 5 compromised UAA email accounts were used to send over 800,000 spam messages. Fortunately, UAA's anti-spam system recognized and contained most of these messages. But in the process, legitimate inbound and outbound email to university users was severely delayed. UAA's systems were able to queue the legitimate undelivered/unsent email for eventual delivery by yesterday around 2pm.
Users! PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP PERSONAL INFORMATION TO EMAIL REQUESTS. UAA will never ask you for username or password information electronically. Phishers are getting better and better as masquerading as legitimate UAA organizations. Don't be fooled!
