Important Notice for Office 365 - Email

Dear Students, Faculty & Staff,

BSU and NTC campuses are seeing an increase in the number of phishing attempts emailed to students, faculty, and staff.

Please be cautious about messages that ask you to reply with personal information or direct you to websites that request your credentials --StarID or other.

If you receive a suspicious email, please forward a copy of it to phishing@minnstate.edu, then delete it without responding or following any links. If you believe you have entered your credentials in one of these sites, please contact the help desk immediately for next steps.

These messages often ask you to respond to an emergency or urgent request (YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE SHUT DOWN IF YOU DON'T ACT NOW!)… IT Services will never threaten your account with immediate termination or require you take emergency action to keep or "update" it.

For more information about phishing attempts or how to keep yourself safe from online threats, please see ITS Knowledge Base article, Avoiding viruses and malware infections at https://www.bemidjistate.edu/offices/its/knowledge-base/avoiding-viruses-and-malware-infections/ or contact the BSU/NTC help desk.

Thank you,
BSU/NTC IT help desk
