Spam and Phishing - How to Deal With Them
Although we have anti-spam and anti-phishing filters in the university, they are not always 100% successful and occasionally some unsolicited mail will reach your inbox. For such cases, there is a spam reporting tool in MS Outlook - if unrecognized spam or phishing arrives in your inbox, mark such a message as spam. In the case of spam, automatic filters will analyze the message and improve the results in the future. If you mark message as phishing, it will be reviewed by the CSIRT-MU security team.
Therefore, it is advisable to distinguish what is spam and what is phishing - not only from the point of view of danger, but also from the point of view of the burden on other colleagues who check the report. You can find more about phishing in the clear article.
If you need to permanently block one of the e-mail addresses, or if you do not want e-mails from it to fall into the junk category, you can use the list of blocked or safe senders in Outlook. You can also find more information about dealing with spam on our website.
