WebAdvisor Spear Phishing Attempts

A very realistic ‘Spear Phishing’ Email attack is targeting University of Winnipeg users attempting to gather WebAdvisor usernames and passwords. The Email provides a link that forwards people to a fake website.

DO NOT CLICK THE LINK OR ENTER YOUR CREDENTIALS AS THEY WILL BE STOLEN!

The picture below shows how you can determine if you are accessing the fake website.

The University is taking every precaution to protect users here at the University, but until this rogue site is taken down, users may still be able to access it from off campus. We ask for users to err on the side of caution and always log into WebAdvisor by going to the main University home page.

If you have been tricked by this attack, please contact the TSC Service Desk immediately and report the incident. Call or Email at 204-786-9149; help.desk@uwinnipeg.ca
