Phishing Alert: Blackboard "New Article Posted"

Beware of an email from Blackboard Systems <blackboard-alerts@systems.com> that has been sent to Brown users. Like similar phishing emails, this one attempts to get you to click on the provided link to view the new article that was supposedly "posted to you." Below is an example, with one of the clues highlighted: rolling over the link (but don't click on it) directs you to the site for the Euromed Civil Society.

If you receive one, report it as phishing to the Gmail team (from within the message, click on the down arrow to the right of the REPLY button and select "Report phishing") or simply delete it. More about phishing at www.brown.edu/go/phishing and What to do When You Spot a Phish.
