Beware of malware delivered by email

Several individuals at UTA have reported receiving email messages containing attached .zip files that contains hidden malware, or malicious software. While the Office of Information Technology continues to determine the nature of the malware, all emails received that contain a .zip file will be quarantined until further notice. This action is to mitigate further receipt of the malware. OIT is in the process of removing malicious email from inboxes, but the email will remain in your inbox until deleted. Please do not open the attachments of any messages that appear suspicious. LEARN MORE.
