Phishing continues at SJSU

Tech Tips: Phight Phishing
Phishing is an Internet scam where fraudulent "spam" e-mails and Web sites are used to trick recipients into surrendering their personal or financial data for malicious purposes. No authentic SJSU agency asks for passwords to be sent via e-mail!

If your log-in information has been compromised, you need to immediately change your password on all accounts you have unintentionally given up information on.

Also, these kind of spammers are aware that many people use the same user names and/or passwords in multiple places, like bank accounts, ebay and/or Amazon. So, you should change the passwords on any and all of these accounts that have the same password, even if the user name is different.
