Seven in ten UK unis admit being duped by phishing attacks

Quote:
The findings, released Wednesday, follow a recent warning from Action Fraud, the UK's fraud and cybercrime reporting centre, about a phishing scam specifically targeting UK university staff. The bogus email claims the recipient is due for a pay increase, before directing them to click on a link and enter financial details and university logins.

Apologise for my OT rants, Mr Black.
