IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING MALICIOUS EMAILS

LEAMIS have been made aware of suspicious incident regarding emails appearing to be from Egress/Switch

 

LEAMIS would like to remind IT users to be vigilant when dealing with any external emails and DO NOT OPEN attachments (including Word and Excel documents) and DO NOT click links within the message unless you are absolutely certain of the origin of the email

 

Please contact the person/school by phone to check whether they intentionally sent you the email or not. If you are not expecting to receive an email from them the safest thing is not to click on any links within the email. If you are expecting an Egress (previously Switch) communication, please still do not click on the link but instead go directly to their website (https://switch.egress.com)

 

LEAMIS recommend the following:

 

  • Not to click on suspicious links
  • Do not open suspicious attachments
  • If in any doubt check with your IT support or LEAMIS
  • Ensure your Anti-Virus is up to date
  • Ensure a backup is in place and operational

 

 
If you are unsure as to whether you may have inadvertently opened a suspicious attachment or clicked an unknown link please telephone the LEAMIS Service Desk for further advice 0116 2311 280. The Service Desk
will be open from 8:30 am until 5.00 pm.
