A phishing and spoofed email message from "UH " with the subject "Official message" was distributed this morning and directed UH users to a non-UH web site in attempt to steal mail credentials. Please delete this message. If you followed the link in the message AND put your information into that site, please report that to security@uh.edu and immediately change your password. UIT Security alerted authorities and that web site has been taken down.

Please take this opportunity to familiarize yourself with our phishing and spamming best practices.
