Today’s phish of the day is an email that appears to be from ‘ITS help desk’ wanting you to log in and increase your mailbox quota. Does anyone smell a rat?

* amc.edu = Albany Medical (Albany, NY) : Do you have an amc.edu account?
* The Staff and Faculty Access-Page is hosted on faculty8.yolasite.com : yolasite.com is a free web hosting site, this is not usually the hosting solution chosen by IT Departments.
* No contact details (phone, email, webpage, carrier pigeon roost) are given for the ITS help desk? I think not.
* ©Copyright 2013 Microsoft : If we put MS in here somewhere people will think we are legit!

Please do the following:
* Do not forward the email to others
* Do not reply to the email
* Delete this email without opening it.

If you accidentally clicked on the link in the email or replied to it, please contact your IT support.

Verdict: Straight to the trash for you!
