This phishing message pretty much does everything wrong. The “From” address ends in @psu.secure, which is not a Penn State domain, the “To” address is the same as the “From,” the greeting is generic, the message itself is downright confusing and rife with simple grammatical mistakes, and the signature uses “PSUYI” which doesn’t correspond with the University’s identity at all. The one this these spammers did well was to link to a forged WebAccess login page, but that page is in the drbauknecht.de domain, which is a clear indicator that it isn’t legitimate.
From: “Penn State University” <email@example.com>
