At about 12:00pm today (February 17th) we noticed an issue with student emails failing to arrive in Faculty and Staff inboxes. Upon further investigation, we saw these emails were hung up in a queue on Office 365. After determining the root cause of the issue, the tech team was able to restore the flow of email traffic. At this time, student, staff and faculty email is working as intended and all delayed emails have been delivered.
Another phishing email was sent the entire campus with the subject of “New Message”. This is someone trying to gain access to your account by having you click on a link to provide your username and password. If you clicked on the link in the email and provided your password, please contact us immediately via phone 719-255-3536.
Below is the body of the email, you will notice that the link you are asked to click begins with http://barissigorta.com.tr this is not a UCCS website. If you have clicked on the link you will notice the page looks very much like our Faculty and Staff email login, however, it is not. If you have clicked on the link and provided your username and password, please contact us immediately.
