Phishing Warning: Collaborative Cloud Domain

Phishing attempts have become substantially more sophisticated and enticing.  One has been making the rounds of higher education lately that appears quite harmless.  This particular scam invites you to join the Collaborative Cloud Domain at Cloudworlds.org! (A collaborative domain allows members to share common resources and to collaborate based on common interests.)

This is another email phishing scam designed to gather your personal information when you click on the link and sign up.

Remember - NEVER provide personal or sensitive information in response to any unsolicited email. Don’t open unsolicited email attachments. If it’s unsolicited and you’re not sure about it, either delete it or contact the ITS Help Desk helpdesk@macalester.edu.
