Alert: Compromised Teaching Links and Resources

We have become aware that some instructors are sharing non-UofT online resources with students, and that in a select few cases, these sites have been taken over by hackers and phishers, who nefariously use those non-UofT sites to collect information from unsuspecting students who believe the sites are legitimate learning resources assigned by instructors.

Instructors are highly encouraged to regularly check the status of the resources they assign, and if they see that the site has been compromised, to (a) remove the link asap, (b) inform students and advise them to change passwords if they inadvertently entered a password into such a site, and (c)report the matter to their local EdTech or IT Professional or portal.help@utoronto.ca asap.

If you need assistance identifying alternative teaching resources, please speak to your Liaison Librarian.
