RE: UCPath Alert: Beware of Phishing Emails Impersonating UCPath

Dear UCSB Campus Community, 

A phishing email impersonating UCPath is targeting UC employees at several locations, including UC Santa Barbara. The fraudulent email prompts employees to update their UCPath accounts.

Phishing email details

  • The phishing email includes the subject line "Update Your UCPath Account"
  • It contains a link to a fraudulent login page, mimicking the official UCPath login interface

What to do if you receive this email: 

  • Do not open the email, click any links, or open attachments
  • Immediately report phishing emails. 
  • After reporting, delete the email to ensure security and prevent further risk

Thank you,
