EXCLUSIVE: Carnegie Mellon University comes under severe phishing attack

This morning, Carnegie Mellon University was subject to a severe phishing attack, TEISS has found. The attempt comes at a time when Google docs related phishing attack almost crippled Google Mail yesterday. CMU is one of the best known universities in the world but we don't yet know if the attack was aimed at all the campuses of the university which are spread across several continents and has as many as 14,000 registered students.

'It literally hit everything! Students and staff. But our IT sent out an an email almost as soon as it happened- telling everyone to not open those emails. I got like 10 within 30 minutes. Crazy!' said Alison Day, Foreign Student & Scholar Advisor.
