Phishing: 14:30PM, 22 Oct 2021 (voicemail)


Why this looks valid

  • Marist College has a voicemail to email system, and it is normal to receive voicemail messages in our community members' inboxes 
  • The email seems to be from Marist College
  • The email may have personalized details in the body of the message
  • The message appears to be from Microsoft, the Marist College email platform

Why this is phishing

  • The email has an attachment that when opened appears to be a Marist College login page (see second screenshot)
  • The Marist College login page would never be accessed from a file attachment, but only from a Marist branded link
  • Marist voicemail is not related to Microsoft and would never include a Microsoft logo
  • Valid Marist voicemail only comes from Cisco Unity Connection Messaging and never from another source
  • Awkward sentence construction and typos are good indicators of malicious emails

Additional notes

  • This is an extremely dangerous phishing attempt. If you clicked on this link and filled in your credentials, please contact the Help Desk immediately at x4357 (HELP) or
  • Marist College voicemail always includes an attached WAV file of the message and never requires a login
  • Report this message to Microsoft. In Outlook on the Web, click the Junk menu, and select Phishing
  • A little paranoia goes a long way! Be suspicious of any email messages similar to this one
