Beware of Phishing Attempts that Offer COVID-19 Benefits
The UW–Madison Office of Cybersecurity is aware of active phishing campaigns on campus in which the attacker impersonates a UW–Madison employee support unit. The campaign’s email messages ask recipients to click a link and visit a fake COVID-19 benefits site in order to receive financial assistance. Such attacks can occur at any time. Please be on the lookout for email scams, and learn how you can recognize them.
