Security Advisory - Malicious One Class Chrome Extension December 13, 2016

A malicious OneClass Chrome Extension is part of a current phishing scam which, if installed, may send email on students' behalf and also attempts to collect user credentials.

The phishing email content is:

"Hey guys, I just found some really helpful notes for the upcoming exams for <University Name> courses at https://oneclass.com/s/signup.  I highly recommend signing up for an account now that way your first download is free!"

Please DO NOT install this extension, and if you receive an email anything like the one above please DO NOT click anything in the email.  Just delete the email.

This extension attempts to recruit your fellow students into joining OneClass when you log into Blackboard. The plugin will attempt to access your credentials, and email other students in your courses on your behalf to invite them to also download the plugin.  Follow these instructions to uninstall the extension if you have it on your web browser.
