Phishing Email Alert – 8/21/13

August 21, 2013  |  by Jess

We have been made aware of a phishing scam email that went out yesterday evening. Keep in mind that MRIS will never ask for your login credentials via email. If you receive an email requesting your MRIS information, do not respond. If you have responded to any email requesting MRIS Email account information or followed any hyperlinks asking you to verify information, please change your password.

If you have an email account, report any SPAM email by marking it as SPAM within the MRIS Webmail system at This will report the sender to our email vendor and will assist in preventing future deliveries.

Here are some suggestions to keeping yourself safe against these phishing scams in the future.

1. Be suspicious of any urgent requests.
2. Never give or confirm your login credential.
3. Avoid filling out forms in emails. The security of email is low.
4. If an email or postal letter asks you to visit your account, visit your account the way you normally would. Open your web browser and click on the “Favorite” or “Bookmark” that you normally use to access your account.
5. Only enter confidential information on web pages that appear secure.

For more information, please read this post from Garry Marsoubian, MRIS Data Center Services Director, on Phishing by clicking here.

If you ever have a question about a suspicious email that appears to come from MRIS, do not hesitate to contact the MRIS Support Center.

    Thank you.. It is so easy ( in this hurry up ) world to become complacent.

    A word about the MRIS e-mail service. I use it for business. An advantage is that one can receive large documents. Sometimes clients photograph document pages using jpg files and producing a huge number of bytes. If someone sends a bunch of photos, odds are you can receive these. Google, Yahoo and others bounce these back but MRIS e-mail receives the large files more often than not.
