I’ve been made aware of a spear phishing security incident at the CUNY Research Foundation. A sample of the phish is below which the RF has confirmed is bogus. Please share with your respective campus faculty and staff and make sure they verify any financial requests or notices of a change with a telephone call back to the RF.
