Currently there are a large number of faculty, students, and staff who are receiving an email like the following:

Subject: Library account

Dear user,

Due to high numbers of inactive library accounts on our server, you are urged to validate your library account within 72 hours of receiving this e-mail, by using the validation link: Click Here to confirm that your library account is active.

Failure to update will process your account being temporarily blocked or suspended from the network and may not be able to receive.

Do not ignore this message to avoid termination of your library account. Thanks for your co-operation.

Please delete these emails as they are a phishing attack by a malicious source. The library will never send out notices of this type.
