  • August 2019 - DotCIO warning on email spoofing

    Thu, 08/15/2019 - 10:24 -- donohm2

    There are numerous ongoing attempts to spoof email from Rensselaer faculty, deans, administrators, and staff.

    Email spoofing is the creation of a free-email account, such as Gmail, Yahoo or others, under the name of somebody else.  The email address sometimes, but not always, includes the person's name. Often just the name field is forged, since this is displayed by most email clients.
