Two UAH Email Accounts Compromised Through Phishing Attempts

In late January 2021, the UAH Office of Information Technology determined that two UAH email accounts had been compromised through phishing attempts.

A small number of impacted emails contained personally identifiable information such as name, date of birth, or social security number. However, there was no server or directory impacted by this incident and no credit card or banking information was included. At this time, UAH has no evidence that there has been any use or attempted use of the information.  

Yesterday, February 17, 2021, UAH mailed notices to 272 individuals whose data were potentially impacted and offered one year of free credit monitoring and identity theft detection services.  A call center has been set up at 1-800-939-4170 to answer questions about this incident.

UAH is dedicated to providing a safe and secure experience for all users.  Since this incident, the University has implemented additional security review procedures, and has taken preventive measures to protect the security of sensitive information stored on all systems and machines. UAH takes this incident seriously, and is committed to doing all we can to keep this from happening again.
