Is someone telling you that you have won a contest? Chances are, a hacker is trying to trick you-- with a "phishing email." Read this CNET article to make sure you know how to recognize phishing attempts when they arrive in your inbox. Reminder About Password ExpirationAs a part of the new password policy implemented a year ago, all members of the Hamline community must change the password of their user account every 6 months, as well as meet certain complexity requirements. Hamline ITS will start enforcing this 6 month password expiration in early 2014 by disabling accounts that have not had a password change within that timeframe. This does not apply to Banner passwords and Piperline PINs.
