What makes this a Phishing message?
A recent spate of phishing messages have been received on campus purporting to be Dropbox notifications. The link in the email message to "View File" is a ruse to capture CalNet passphrase credentials.
- The return address of the sender is from the network domain for Texas A&M Health Sciences Center (@tamhsc.edu), not Dropbox.
- If you hold your cursor over the "View File" link, you will see that the URL address is a forgery of the real CalNet login address (https://auth.berkeley.edu).
Visit the How to Detect the Authentic CalNet Login Page to learn how to protect yourself from these kind of scams.
