Baiting type of scam. Link contains malware. Sometimes the message will not contain a link but an attachment containing a virus. Scammer uses a compromised account to respond to email existing in the compromised inbox. The bottom part of the message may be legit but the scammer inserts their payload in the upper part. The scammer hopes to build credibility by responding to legit email and trick the receiver into clicking on the link in the email. The compressed file containing the malware requires a password to unlock and the scammer conveniently provides it in the message. We have notified Microsoft and blocked the link at the border.

This is a brief reminder to all currently enrolled students that next
Monday, September 11, is the last day for a 100% refund for a regular
session (full term) course.
First, please check for any holds that may exist in your Student
Center in KSIS, and remember that most holds must be cleared prior to
dropping a course. You are responsible for dropping your courses in
KSIS. If you are dropping your only course, then contact your
academic deans office.
If you have any other questions regarding this process, then contact
your academic advisor and/or Enrollment Services in the Office of the Registrar,
118 Anderson Hall, *******.
All academic calendar deadlines can be found at the following website:

I’ll start. After the births of both of my daughters, I had irrational worries about their health. When my older daughter had a benign bug bite on her hand, I seriously wondered if it might be cancer. I even asked her pediatrician if it might be cancer. After my second daughter was born at the robust weight of 9 pounds, 16 ounces, I immediately pondered whether the almond croissants I had eaten with disturbing regularity during pregnancy had doomed her to a lifetime of diabetes. Okay, your turn.
