The UCT Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) is aware of a phishing email that has been sent to some UCT staff members indicating that their lives are at risk. The necessary security measures have been put in place to block this sender, and to prevent any replies from being sent to this email address.
We take these sort of phishing emails very seriously and will be conducting the necessary investigations. If you receive any future suspicious emails, please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
