Our event scheduling software, Ad Astra, has indicated that malicious emails are going out with their name on them. Please be aware of this in case you get one. Their announcement about this is included below:
We have had several reports that some of our clients have recently received malicious emails that have the appearance that they have come from Ad Astra accounts. These emails may look like they are coming from an Ad Astra email address but instead are “spoofed” addresses which are not being generated by Ad Astra. These emails have attachments which if opened may contain computer viruses or malware.
If you receive an email from an Ad Astra account that contains an attachment, please review it carefully before opening. Please refer to your institution’s best practices regarding suspicious emails. If you have any questions regarding an email’s authenticity that has come from an Ad Astra account, please verify with the sender, or you can call our office directly at 800-878-5611
