As part of our on-going effort to improve SiteBuilder efficiency and security, UC ANR IT is removing the PDF conversion tool from SiteBuilder.

The most successful phishing emails are designed to look like the email comes from a reputable source such as a known person or entity. UC ANR faculty and staff are often the target of attempts to gain login credentials or personal information through phishing scams that may claim to be coming from UC ANR.
