It came to the Library’s attention that there is a fraudulent email scam targeting University of Sydney students.

Some of the University students have received an email that appears to be coming from library@usyd.edu.au with the subject line: Reactivate Your UniKey.

The email asks people to click on a link to activate their UniKey; this link directs them to a bogus webpage that looks similar to a University UniKey login web page.

If a student inputs their UniKey details on that page their account credentials will be compromised.

The email and web page are not affiliated with the University of Sydney in any way.

Anyone who receives the email should delete it immediately.

If people have entered their information on the web page, they should contact ICT as soon as possible and report a possible compromise and change their UniKey password.
