We’ve been made aware of a phishing email being circulated which purports to come from the Library, stating that your Library account has expired and asking you to go to a log-in page to reset your details.

Please be advised that we never ask for password resets, nor does the Computer Centre, and Library accounts are generally tied to course or contract dates – there is no automated notification process.

The samples we have seen were flagged by MailScanner as spam, but if you receive anything which you are uncertain about then please check it out with us on Library@Brunel.ac.uk. You can find further advice from the Computer Centre here.
