From: California State University <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Sent: Sunday, August 27, 2017 6:19 AM
Subject: CSULB Email Verification System Alert.
The fraudulent email is very vague and informs recipients of a supposed CSULB system alert and to click on a link to verify their email. This phishing email comes from an actual CSULB account which has been compromised by phishers/hackers and is being used to broadly email the campus. The compromised account issue is being addressed.
Intent of the Email
The sender is attempting to capture email account credentials for their own malicious purposes or to install malware. The link has been blocked by most web browsers.
