The Phish Market is a list of recent emails that were reported to the KSU Office of
Cybersecurity as possible phishing attempts on the University community. The Office
of Cybersecurity has confirmed these messages as malicious phishing attempts. If you
have received an email that you believe may contain a phishing attempt, it is possible
that some of the language and links differ from similar messages posted on the Phish
Market. It is not uncommon for malicious actors to create variant messages.
We update this list regularly but it is possible that you received the message before it is published to the Phish Market. If you mistakenly provided credentials to a confirmed phishing email, please change your NetID password immediately at https://netid.kennesaw.edu. If you receive a suspicious email not in the Phish Market, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Email is the official method of communication at Kennesaw State University. All announcements and business related correspondence are conducted through official Kennesaw State University email accounts. Any email claiming to be an employee of the university that does not originate from an “@kennesaw.edu” address should be held in suspicion, especially if it claims to be from a person of leadership. Please follow the reporting instructions above if you receive suspicious emails that meet these criteria.
