Jacobs mail servers are currently blocked on several blacklists because of sending spam.

Our mail servers are sending spam because of users that fall for phishing and gave their username and password to someone.

Please see our block post regarding spam and phishing.

Do not give your username and password to anyone

Really (warning) Don't give it away (warning) Don't give your username and password to anyone (warning) Never (warning) You! will block outgoing mail for any member of the university including youself, if you do (warning)

On Thursday 30 March 2017 between 07:00 and 08:00 local Bremen time servers and network components will be updated.

Server and network operations will be unreliable. Expect unavailable servers and sudden downtimes of services without prior explicit announcement.

If you have to work on files stored on the server during that time, then before the maintenance hour copy the respective files to your local hard disk, work on it locally, and after finishing your work and after the end of the maintenance interval, copy them back onto the server.

Spam / Phishing Wave

Do not give your username and password to anyone

Really (warning) Don't give it away (warning) Don't give your username and password to anyone (warning) Never (warning)

If you do and fall for phishing, your account will be used to send spam and phishing mails. Which is not really the worst part of it, the worst part is that our domain and mail servers will be blacklisted as spam source and blocked by other mail servers. This means you! block outgoing mail for any member of the university including your self.

We currently face a relative massively spam / phishing wave.

Some of them are only made for Jacobs University and try to look "official". Why? Because with every phishing wave there is at least one University member who fall for.

Be sure that we, nor any other email, social media, etc. provider, will never send you a mail that urge you to login somewhere immediately just to protect, unblock or release something.

Unfortunately it is difficult to detect and identify phishing mail with a spam filter. This is because of the format of such mails. They are just text with one link and typically come from a regular mail account and server, because of someone else falls for phishing and has given his username and password to someone.

As we get aware of such mails we will block the linked web address from within our university network and amend our filters.

But you can mostly identify phishing easily by your self.

Always be skeptical if you are asked or forced to log in to release or gain mail or any other content. You haven't do this before, to get your mail/data.

And you were never asked to log in to any of our systems to protect your account or data from deletion.

Be alarmed if the sender menaced or urged.

Read your mail in plain text. As you can see in the examples below, you are not only seeing the link text, like click here or www.exchange.jacobs-university.de/renew oder <<hier klicken>> but the hole link. And obviously the link does not point to our university nor read something with jacobs-university.de like teamwork.jacobs-university.de or exchange.jacobs-university.de or campusnet.jacobs-university.de or....

Even if you clicked on the link, accidentally, you can see that this is no university website, if you take a look at the address field of your internet browser.

If you hover over the link with your mouse, you typically see a little window/pop up which shows the address behind the click here link.

Most, but not all, phishing mails are a grammatical disaster.

 

If you are unsure, ask us! Forward the suspicious mail to itsupport@jacobs-university.de and we will check if it is spam or phishing.

 

And again, do not give your username and password to anyone

(warning) Never, never ever, really never, give your username and password to anyone (warning) 

 

The mails mostly look similar as the following examples:
