Phish Bowl

Welcome

Welcome to the MRU Phish Bowl! Here you can find a copy of every phishing email that has arrived in a Mount Royal inbox and then been reported as suspicious or malicious. If you are not sure if an email is malicious or not, you can search this database to see if it has been previously reported.

How to use this site:

  1. Browse through the entire list of emails
  2. Browse through a category listed in the menu on the right
  3. Search for text found in the email using the search field

All links and attachments that appear in the emails are inactive. Please do not enter the URLs found in these emails into your browser’s address bar as some of these web pages contain malware that can be loaded onto your machine simply by visiting them. Each email entry is titled with its subject, the name of the email sender and the date the email was sent.

If you have any questions about the Phish Bowl or the emails it contains, contact Bernadette Pasteris the IT Security Training Analyst at bpasteris@mtroyal.ca.
