Phishing warning message

In order to assist our users in identifying potential malicious messages, we have implemented a phishing warning message that appears in emails that contain certain content that may indicate the email is a phishing message.  Here is the text of the warning:

“Warning: The following e-mail message contains a web link using a hosting service (URL) known to be used by "phishers" to attempt to steal your password or other sensitive information. Treat this message with caution and do not click on any link unless you are certain it is legitimate. If you have questions, please contact IT Central (4357).”

When the above message appears in an email, users should make sure to verify the legitimacy of the email before interacting with the content.
