Please circulate this message with your colleagues

What is happening? There is an influx of suspicious emails being received on campus today.

Reminder: Be cautious of any suspicious email you receive. Under no circumstances should you open or extract unexpected zip files or run any files contained within an attachment. Doing so allows the malware access to your machine, which will render it unavailable until fixed. This process can take 1-2 business days.


What should you do if you receive such an email?

1.      Do not open any attachments or click on included links.

2.      Please forward the email to soc at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:soc at uwaterloo.ca> and include email headers (information available at https://uwaterloo.ca/information-systems-technology/full-email-headers).

3.      Delete the original message.



Questions or concerns? Contact the IST Service Desk, helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca<mailto:helpdesk at uwaterloo.ca> or ext. 44357.
