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.
