Hackers begin to attack universities again

An Iranian hacking group have resurfaced just in time for the start of the new term, unleashing phishing scams on academic institutions. These attacks are aimed at both staff and students as the activity within university portals picks up again.

The attacks are sent to the victim’s email and contain a link to a website that is made to look official. Some links are also redirecting victims to associated apps like library portals. Once the link is opened, it collects the users login creditals.
