Nov 16, 2018
Those messages could be referred as to Impersonation attacks. Impersonation attacks are emails that impersonate a trusted individual or company in an attempt to gain access to sensitive data or finances. These attacks can be hard to spot and potentially lethal for businesses. Attackers will often register a very similar email domain and create a new email ID using a similar name to the person they’re impersonating. They will then email the target requesting an urgent response. As the email is only slightly different the victim will often not spot the difference and will send the sensitive data that the attacker asks for.

If you receive such emails, please do not reply and report it to ITS security team (itsecurity@iastate.edu). Thanks.
