Many employees received an email about a salary update on 11 August. The email is a spam email that tries to get login information from you. Do NOT click this link.

A targeted phishing attempt has reached many employees 11 August. It poses as a salary adjustment statement and contains a link leading to a webpage on hXXps://summervilledream.org/, which is styled as a Uppsala University web login page.

The subject of the email is "Löneuppdatering för <email address>" and the sender is "Administrativ anmälan", with an email address in Portugal.

Many people have fallen for this scam and entered their email and password. Note that the email is very convincing and it is therefore easy to be fooled.

Do NOT click this link. If you have already entered your credentials, please change your password immediately.

Please warn your colleagues about this.
