Malware warning

Emails with the subjects “Have you received your payment” and “Apply for a loan” are being distributed to students and staff. Please do not open these since they could contain an embedded file which will infect your device with malware.

When you receive emails with attachments from unknown senders, keep in mind that you should never open attachments as they could contain malicious content.

If you think your account or device has been compromised or you notice suspicious activity:

  1. Immediately change your password on
  2. Contact the IT Service Desk by logging a request or calling 808 4367.
  3. More information is available on our blog and Twitter.
