Hijacked University Accounts

Corporate email servers often trust email coming from universities.  This circumstance has enticed evil hackers to take over badly guarded university email accounts and use them against corporate targets.  Most legacy email security gateways do nothing to stop this type of attack. INKY sees the discrepancy between where the email purports to come from (e.g., Microsoft) and where it actually comes from (e.g., the University of Oxford), flagging the assault for both IT and the user.
