Phishing alert: Appears to be from Microsoft

Many people at GC are receiving one of the more popular phishing scam emails. It appears to be from Microsoft, a “Security Alert” wanting you to revalidate your account. Know that this is not from Microsoft. It’s a very elaborate phish. Do not click on any link in this email. Please delete it. If you did click on the email, please reset you Unify password (and subsequent email password) at password.gcsu.edu.

Security alert

We think that someone else might have accessed the Microsoft account ********@gcsu.edu.  When this happens we require you to verify your identity with a security challenge and then change your password the next time you sign in.

If someone else has access to your account, they have your password and might be trying to access your personal information or send junk email.

If you haven’t already recovered your account, we can help you do it now.
