2014.09.11: Phishing Attempt, "To All Employee's - Important Address UPDATE"

A fairly sophisticated phishing attempt went out yesterday, September 11th, 2014, to several CalArts email addresses.  It was purported to come from administrator@calarts.edu, urging CalArts employees to update address information for HR.  It contains several web addresses that include calarts.edu which can make spotting the phishing attempt more difficult than normal.  

As always we urge our community to send suspicious emails to the IT ticket system.

Below is a picture of the email and the text of the message:
