Information Technology Services has received reports of MIX users getting a fake eCampus message asking them to update their login credentials, and warning that failure to do so will result in a suspension of service.

Phishing

This email is NOT legitimate. Do not respond or click on the links. Delete immediately.

The email appears to be authentic, stealing the look of WVU’s page and linking the user to an official WVU site. Do not take the bait. The example below shows the user is NOT authentic. The URL is for a German engineering firm.

ITS is working to block access to this site from WVU computers.
