Phishing is a type of malicious email sent to you in order to steal usernames, passwords, personal information, credit card numbers and other sensitive data by masquerading as from a trustworthy entity. A phish pretends to be from a credible source such as UofL IT, HR or other organizations related to the university. The goal of most phishing emails is to trick you into clicking on a web link or visiting a web site in order to steal your UofL credentials.
