What Are Your Thought. (supposedly from "Tallman Trask")

April 3, 2017

Unfortunately, as long as the University publishes the names of important staff and faculty, there will be those that try to take advantage of others by spoofing these important identities via e-mail. In this case, a message supposedly from Tallman Trask originated from a Time Warner RoadRunner business-class customer computer, traveling through a mail server in Portugal before arriving in the Duke mail system, likely without either computer owner's knowledge. The link within the message points to a page hosted on a web server in Chile, which is likely compromised, again without the owner's knowledge.

The link within the message has also already been blocked by our e-mail security systems.

What to look for: the email
