BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU is warning its students, faculty, and staff of a recent series of phishing messages being sent to LSU email addresses. The messages have led to more than 200 accounts being compromised, the university says.
The school says the messages appear to be a reply to a previous conversation from another lsu.edu email address. The message then asks the recipient to follow a link to read the full message. LSU says anyone who receives this message should not click on the link. Instead, report the message as a phishing attempt to IT Security by clicking the “report phishing” button.
