In the last days, several GWDG user accounts were compromised by phishing mail attacks. It is possible that those compromised accounts are utilized to gain access on other accounts. It seems that the compromised users accounts often belong to the same institute.
We would like to raise your attention to be careful about such attacks. So, even if you get a phishing mail from the mail address of a colleague, please be cautious.
