Phishing Example 88: Important account information update

Subject: Important account information update

University of Minnesota Account Update

The University of Minnesota

Things to note:

  • URL is NOT from "umn.edu," - it's hosted in Spain.
  • VERY good copy of current login page
  • IF a person fills it out, it redirects to myu.umn.edu and will show you what appears to be the same login page. Users will probably assume they mistyped their password and re-enter it, THEN get a successful login.
