Reporting Phishing Email

Q: Is there a way people associated with MIT can send reports of phishing emails?

Answer

Please report phishing emails to the IS&T Security team via phishing@mit.edu. We can take steps that will protect other users on the MIT network from falling victim to the phish. Note that these reports must originate from an mit.edu email address or they will be filtered out. Please do not cc: any other support-related email addresses.

It is important to note that the best way to report phishing is to forward the original message as an attachment. That will include all the technical details we need. Please take the time to follow these steps so that we can address the issue from as many angles as possible and track down the original source.
