On report of phishing attempts – 

  • We block the phisher return email addresses.
  • If a website is used to collect replies, we notify the website administrators that their services are being misused or have been compromised.
  • We block access from the University network to phisher websites.
  • We notify other schools about reported phisher addresses and websites.
  • We work to tune our rules that flag phishing email as spam.
