Phishing QR codes

Posted: 9/29/2022 3:36:11 PM

Hello Titans,

  We have been alerted to a recent trend on campus of stickers being placed in public areas or on college equipment.  While there are legitimate uses of QR codes on campus, there are some unfortunate scams as well.  Most of these are attempts to steal credentials (username and password) or gain control of your device via malicious code.

  Please avoid scanning items such as the one shown above, and be sure to ask if you have any question as to the validity of a website, email or QR code.  We appreciate you taking the time to think twice and not hesitating to call when in doubt.

 

Thank you!
