From:  Kelly Janke <Kelly.Janke@csulb.edu>
Sent:  Thursday, 6/29/2017 5:58 AM   
Subject:  1 New Notification Regarding Your Payroll Account Status BLOCKED.

 

Summary

The fraudulent email notifies recipients that their payroll account status has been blocked.  They are encouraged to click on a link that appears to be the CSULB Outlook Web App link.  Because the originating email address used for this phishing attempt is a compromised CSULB email account, campus email users will not be able to block the sender, or move the message to the Junk folder.

Intent of the Email

The sender is attempting to capture BeachID account password information for their own malicious purposes or to install malware.
