Many mathserv users received a message with the subject "Please confirm your message" today, purportedly from email@example.com. This appears to be a spam or phishing attack, though a broken one.
As ever, you can be pretty sure that something which purports to come from a "support team" or unnamed administrator is not from RHPCS; messages from an RHPCS analyst will always have a proper name.
The links in these messages can be deceiving because they appear to be on www.math.mcmaster.ca, but they HTML actually points to a different server. For safety, you can always choose to copy-and-paste a URL in a message into your browser, rather than clicking on the link.
