We urge users to never click a link in an unsolicited email message and to change all passwords if they suspect an account has been compromised.
 
Microsoft will automatically block accounts that were compromised and are sending spam emails. A number of users have had their accounts blocked this week.  Anyone who is having this issue should contact us at itservices@gc.cuny.edu and we will follow up with them individually.
 
All staff, faculty and students are encouraged to take this 30 minute security awareness program.
