Harvard Targeted Phishing Campaign

Harvard Information Security has been made aware of a phishing email scam targeting the Harvard community. The attackers are posing as Harvard University representatives asking for account information, including HarvardKey credentials, and linking to a fake Harvard login screen. We believe the goal of this phishing attack is to access personal information including W-2s. Harvard Information Security is reaching out directly to any individuals who have been affected by this attack and we are taking other protective steps.
