Microsoft impersonation phone scams reported
The National Cyber Security Centre Finland has received numerous reports of scam phone calls from people claiming to be from Microsoft's technical support. In such cases, the caller claims that the victim's computer is spreading viruses. The victim is then told to open a web page which, if opened, installs a malicious program on the victim's computer.
Microsoft does not provide any kind of support for university computers. Never follow any instructions given by such callers!
More information can be found from the University of Helsinki Helpdesk and from the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority.
