This is the theft of your login details of a system, simply by posing as somebody you trust.

 

Password theft

Beware of people (via phone or email) pretending to be from the IT service and asking for your login details. ITaCS, or any other reputable organisation will never ask you for your password. System administrators can reset your password if they need too - they don't need your current password. 

'Phishing' is a common way for criminals to obtain user account information and passwords. The email may ask you to verify your details on a website or reply with your username and password. The email may look legitimate and link within it may lead to a website set up to look identical to the real site. The criminals hope to trick you into providing them with your details. Emails from legitimate sources, such as your bank or ITaCS, will never ask you to provide your details in this way.
