New phishing threat uses stolen email content to appear valid New phishing threat uses stolen email content to appear valid

The Help Desk has received reports of emails that appear to be valid because they contain content from real messages sent by a trusted source. The emails appear to be from someone within the original email’s address list and contain a subject beginning with “Re: RE:”.  

Currently these phishing messages only contain malicious links. Be wary of any emails asking you to click on a link, even if they appear to come from a trusted source. If you are unsure, follow up with the person the email seems to have come from.

Shutdown of UTORexchange and UTORmail Shutdown of UTORexchange and UTORmail

If you have received a message regarding the shutdown of your UTORexchange or UTORmail account, see our article on Moving data off UTORexchange or UTORmail to save your messages before your account is shut down.

Also, you should notify relevant parties that your address will be going out of service. Examples may include:
 - people and organizations you correspond with
 - subscriptions to newsletters, mailing lists, or listservs
 - services that provide alerts and notifications (e.g. news, banking, other financial services)
 - online logins and memberships (e.g. social media, sites with member-only portions, online shopping)

Those who believe our records of your status with U of T are in error can go to to check eligibility to upgrade to Office 365.

If you have further questions with regards to your status, contact UofT (registrar’s office for questions about student or alumni status, or Human Resources for questions about staff status). Thank you for your attention to this matter.
