College deals with ‘phishing’ attack

A legitimate-looking email to Northern Lakes College turned out to be something sinister, the college announced last week. Calling it a ‘phishing attack,’ the college said in a news release that it “resulted in the compromise of an administrative staff’s email account.”
However, quick action was taken and no further harm was done, the release goes on to say.
“This incident will not impact our academic or business operations in any way,” said college president Ann Everatt.
