Beware: Blackboard Phishing E-mail

Users have reported receiving a “Blackboard Alert” phishing e-mail that asks the recipient to sign-in to Blackboard to view an important course form.  Although the e-mail appears to have been sent from Blackboard, it did not.  The link provided in the e-mail does not take you to Blackboard.  
 
If you receive one of these e-mails, please do not click the link! If you did and attempted to log-in, please change your password immediately at ITS’s website.
 
 
When in doubt, it’s best to type bb.uis.edu directly into your web browser’s address bar.
