Phishing Example 34: Bogus UMN login page

A recent phishing page discovered, hosted at a free website provider, underlines why you must pay attention to the URL when you are using the WEB:

This page has nothing to distinguish it from a real UMN sign-in page. IF you fill it in, it will redirect you to the real - apparently identical - shibboleth login page.

ALWAYS double check the web address - if the URL for a UMN sign-in does NOT end in "umn.edu" do not use it.
