Phishing attempt claiming to be IANA
University IT security professionals have received alerts concerning a phishing attempt from an attacker claiming to be "IANA - Internet Assigned Numbers Authority". The phishing message states that IANA "has been receiving complaints of unauthorized use of the e-mail system and the myAccount access gateway"..."We are moving ALL Web Mail / Email Users and Accounts to a New Secured Server and, we need your FULL assistance to accomplish this". The email asks for your university portal address, university ID, date of birth, current email, password, phone number, and name. DO NOT reply to the phishing e-mail. Never give your account passwords (PAWS, e-mails, etc...) to anyone.
