  • Some phishing emails have been going around again. Phishing attacks use email, websites, and sometimes unsolicited phone calls to ask for personal information from seemingly trustworthy organizations and people. The links that they provide may point to a site used to spread a computer virus which would try to infect your computer. **Do not click on any links or respond to emails asking for your personal information or credentials. No legitimate help desk, email provider, banking, brokerage, social networking or shopping site will ever ask you for this information in an email.**  If you have a question about an email from an organization with which you do business, please call a known and trusted phone number or go a bookmarked favorite; do not use the link in the email.  If you did click the link and enter your information in response to this or any other suspicious emails please change your Gatorlink password immediately.
