Watch out for phishing!

Remember that no one at BU will ever ask you for your password or ask you to “verify” it; nor would any other legitimate business or institution. It is important that you safeguard your passwords and never give them to anyone.

Making your spam/phishing filter more effective
Mail that is clearly spam is filtered for you, automatically. However, one person’s spam might be another person’s research project, so other messages are simply tagged as suspicious and then allowed to go through. You can decide how to handle suspicious mail that does get through, following the tips for Managing Spam provided by IS&T at http://www.bu.edu/tech/services/comm/email/unwanted-email/spam/.

Report phishing
If you see a phishing message, please send it and full headers to abuse@bu.edu.
