Scam message puporting to come from helpdesk@eng.cam.ac.uk

A scam email message is being sent to members of the Department claiming that an upgrade is happening, and that in order to keep your accounts you must provide your userid and password.

DO NOT do this. University Computing Staff will never ask you for your password. If you receive any message asking for your password, it is a scam.

If you have already replied to the message you must:

  1. Change your Engineering password immediately. If you cannot do this please let us know - we will disable your account until you can reset it.
  2. Let helpdesk@eng.cam.ac.uk know that you have replied to the message - we will need to work with you to check that your account has not been damaged by the scammers.
