A news release from the city of Regina says an internal e-mail account was comprised this week with a fake e-mail being sent out in what is known as a phishing scam.
The e-mail, sent using the address of a high-ranking city employee, asked recipients to click on a link to a survey. Those clicking on that link were then asked to provide a password. The city says if your credentials were entered to that page, whoever is responsible now has your e-mail address and password.
The e-mail in question has this for a subject line. E-Reminder for ((PO-D201719)
If you received such an e-mail, the city is asking you ignore it, and remove it immediately. If you did click on the link, you should change your passwords to prevent any possible problems from happening.
The statement from the city says the Office of the Privacy Commissioner has been informed about this breach and that to their knowledge, they are not aware of any city data being compromised as a result of this and that at this time, it appears as if only one e-mail was affected.
