Phishing attempt from sun email account

If you receive an email from a sun email account with the subject “To All Faculty\Staff of Stellenbosch University“, asking you to click on a link to upgrade your webmail, please do not respond and provide your information (see example at the bottom of this post).

This is not a legitimate email notification from Information Technology and we will never ask you to give your personal information via an email link. The suspicious email is being sent from a compromised email account and is a clever phishing attempt.

When you click on links and provide your information on phishing emails, criminals will be able to gain access to your personal information. If you clicked on the link of this phishing email, immediately change your password on

For any enquiries please contact the IT Service Desk by logging a request or calling 808 4367. More information on phishing is available on our blog and Twitter.
