Some malware has been detected at several SUNY campuses that install a banking Trojan.  This kind of malware can steal your banking account credentials and gain unauthorized access to your financial accounts.

To keep yourself protected:

  • DO NOT open any attachments or click any links inside emails that you are not expecting, even if the email appears to come from someone you know.
  • DO NOT “Enable Editing”, “Enable Macros”, or “Enable Content” in any documents, unless you have verified that the email/attachment is legitimate by contacting the email sender directly via phone.  (Do not reply to the email to verify.)
  • Make sure your antivirus program is updating daily.

In most cases, suspicious emails can be safely ignored and deleted.  If you are uncertain about the legitimacy of an email, please forward it to the CTS Help Desk (help@oswego.edu).
