(Friday, December 23, 2016)
WARNING - Potential email phishing scheme
Blackboard Support has reported a malicious phishing scheme asking users to install a OneClass Chrome extension that may contain text similar to the following:
"Hey guys, I just found some really helpful notes for the upcoming exams for
courses at https://oneclass[dot]com/s/signup. I highly recommend signing up for an account now that way your first download is free!"
If you receive an email or any message similar to this do not open any link contained within and delete it immediately.
This Chrome browser plugin, if installed, can also add a button inside Blackboard Learn pages to "Invite YourClassmates toOneClass" to try to promote thismalicious plugin/product.
Although there have no reported instances at any SUNY colleges at this time, this announcement serves as a warning and caution to be very careful of clicking on any links within emails and messages about products that you may not be familiar with.
Please contact theOpen SUNY HelpDesk at 844-673-6786 or 518-320-1300 if you need further assistance or information.
